When I was little my parents read to me every night before bed. These quiet moments were where I learned all about Anne of Green Gables, Tom Sawyer, and life in a Little House on the Prairie. And they resulted in days spent trying to find a gate that would lead to a secret garden or trying to find a closet that would lead me to Narnia. Books were magic.
Now I want to pass this magic on to Boo. I want to fill her imagination with elaborate tales that will lead her on endless adventures and open up an exciting world to her. I think she’s well on her way.
We’ve been reading to Boo since before she was born. And not a day goes by that we don’t read together. It is her absolute favorite activity -and mine.
She’s got an embarrassingly large collection of books to choose from, but she has an ever-rotating list of about 3-5 favorites at any given time. Here are Boo’s current top 5 books.
Way better than anything on T.V. What are your favorite books from childhood?
