Back to childhood for the next day in the 30 Days of Books list:
Day 21 – Favorite book from your childhood
It’s probably no surprise at all to anyone that stops by here that I was a big reader as a kid. Loved to read. Still do, of course.
As a kid, I read all kinds of books. As I recall, I started on books my older brother and sister had read, specifically a lot of Hardy Boys. I can remember Chet chortling a lot.
But I think the book that really started my love affair with books and certainly kindles in me a love of science fiction was Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time. The story was the first that I recall that didn’t follow a standard “kids book” formula and challenged me as a reader to open my mind to new ideas and new worlds.
I hope that every child finds a book that does the same for them.
