I have also spent several lovely hours wandering through the stacks of three different children’s libraries. The nostalgia is permeating everything. I’d forgotten what it’s like to haul home a stack of 15 new delicious-looking books and devour 2 or more of them before the day is over.
I have spent most of my adult life searching for that blinkered bliss that accompanies childhood reading. I almost never find it. If this continues, I’m in for a really good winter vacation.
This is my JOB. Are you kidding me?
Thank you all so much for your book suggestions! I will post a full 45-book reading list for my Child Studies course for your enjoyment once it is finalized.
