Weekend Assignment #82: What was your favorite bedtime story as a child?
As a very young child, I had two favorite books: "The Story of Cooky", mentioned a few days ago; and "Little Black Sambo". And there does seem to be a theme here, because both stories made me hungry. The first left me wanting warm, home-made cookies; the second made me crave pancakes.
I've heard that "Little Black Sambo" was banned as being racist, although for the life of me, I don't see it that way.
If you aren't familiar with the story, it's online HERE. If you're on dialup, it may take awhile to load.
Here's the exact book I had, and it's bringing $25 to $35 and more on Ebay:
Extra Credit: As an adult , have you shared that favorite bedtime story with a child?
Thanks to Ryanagi, I should soon be receiving "The Story Of Cookie" in the mail; and of course I'll insist the granddaughters read it (although they're a little old for it). And thanks to John jogging my memory, which led me to "Little Black Sambo" online, yes: I'll probably read it to/with them tomorrow.
Play along, folks. Do an entry about your favorite story from childhood and leave the link HERE at John's blog.
