For this week's Weekend Assignment, John Scalzi wants to know: What were your favorite children's books? Tell us in your blog, and link to the post in the comments section of John's audio entry.
Because I'm always trying to find little pieces of my childhood, I went and purchased my favorite childhood books on Ebay; that's them in the picture: Little Black Sambo, The Story Of Cooky, and Egermeier's Bible Story Book.
I'm thankful for parents who read to me, and taught me to love books.
I remember one time sitting on Daddy's lap on a Sunday morning, him reading the funnies to me while I looked at the pictures. And I recall the book of Mother Goose rhymes Mother read to me so often that I knew them all by heart. I fondly recollect the Bobbsey Twins and Heidi and Little House On The Prairie.
I'm thankful today for books.
