Children’s books

With J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince making its sensational debut last weekend I started thinking about children’s books. There have been a lot of wonderful ones over the years, The Cat in the Hat, Where the Wild Things Are, Bambi, the Mother Westwind stories, the Chronicles of Narnia, the Chronicles of Prydain, Nancy Drew, and on and on.

  1. As an adult, do you own children’s books?
  2. If you do, do you still read them even when there are no children around?
  3. What were your favorites as a child? Now?

  2. Unfortunately, all my old children’s books still live at home with my parents. I do have some children’s non-fiction that I bought at a thrift store for use in future collages. They are Time Life books with titles like “What Life Was Like In… (fill in the blank)”. I have Medieval Times, Ancient Egypt, and The Age of Reason. Very informative!
