“People who know and love the same books as you, have the road map to your soul.” ― Cassandra Clare
“All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was…” ― Ernest Hemingway
A few disclaimers before we get into the good stuff: 1) I dream of someday becoming a middle school librarian. That being said, you have been forewarned concerning my choice of books. Yes, I do still love and value a good classic, but there will always be a special place in my heart for juvenile literature. And I love fantasy like dragons and wizards and such. 2) I also struggle with perfectionism (surprise, surprise), so to release myself from unnecessary pressure – let’s just call this list a work in progress and be okay with the fact that I will be constantly tweaking it. Okie, dokie? Thanks! 3) In the future I plan to incorporate regular blog posts including more details of my thoughts and feelings about the books that I read. A virtual book club, so to speak. But for now, I will just include some favorites in list form found on Amazon. Just click on the category you are interested in…
Picture Books…coming soon.
And, by all means, please share your own favorites in the comments section. For the love.
“I’m going to play in the Hundred Acre Wood,” said the small boy who lived in our house.
I knew what he meant and where he was going, and so I said, “Fine. If you see Owl, be sure to ask him about Eeyore’s tail.”
We knew about Eeyore, Pooh, Piglet, Owl, and Christopher Robin. Together we had met them in a book written by A.A. Milne, and our life would always be richer because they had become our friends.
If families don’t read together, how do they know each other’s friends? (Gladys Hunt – Honey for a Child’s Heart)
