Filipino Friday: Kids and Books
What were your favorite books as a kid? Do you still read children’s books? If you would give a book to your younger self, what would it be?
My hands-down favorite is Childcraft volume 3, Children Everywhere! It’s the one with short stories from different countries. My favorite stories from it:
The book I’d give to my younger self is this:
Friends gave this book to our daughter as a gift, and it’s one of the first books she really, really liked. We’d read it to her, and she would say, “Again!” If we happened to quote a line from the story (because we eventually memorized it), she’d perk up and ask us to read the book again. She has since moved on to The Hungry Caterpillar and Dear Zoo, but this holds a special place in my heart now, and I think the younger me would have liked it too.
