A Step Back Into Childhood
Today I decided to try and finish up my Christmas shopping and, being an avid book reader, I decided to head to the bookstore and see what I could find for my niece, Morgan.
Total time warp people. I spent about 20 minutes in there just reliving my childhood through all the great books I read when I was young. The Ramona Quimby books, Bridge to Terebithia, The Secret Garden, etc. So many memories of hiding under my covers with a flashlight and reading long into the night, praying that I wouldn't get caught being up past my bedtime. It makes me want to reread all those great books again....like The Boxcar Children. Loved it. Just loved it.
So, to start Morgan off, I got her the original series of Winnie the Pooh books. My sister used to love Winnie the Pooh and I thought these would be great books she could read to Morgan. I think I will make it my mission to keep my sweet, little niece stocked up in books...that and Barbies, of course.
