I’m a day late in posting this, but yesterday was International Children’s Book Day. Reading as a child spurred my imagination and took me to places that I enjoyed going to over and over.
My favorite growing up was One Kitten for Kim by Adelaide Holl. When Kim’s cat has kittens, his parents tell him he can keep one, but must give the rest away. He puts them in his wagon and sets off, but things don’t go quite as planned.
This is a delightful book, and I scored a copy off eBay years ago to read to my two sons. It’s been read in our household hundreds of times.
What are some of your favorites? I’d love to hear from you.
As a kid, I loved Uncle Remus and all the Curious George books. But now that I’m a grandfather to two girls, I look for more current titles. One of my/their favorites is The Amazing Matilda by Bette Stevens..
