Happy Wednesday All,
Do you remember some of your favorite childhood books? The ones that you read over and over and still could read again?
There's a few that come to mind for me. One such series is the Betsy-Tacy Books by Maud Hart Lovelace. Maud based her characters on real life counterparts (and sometimes more than one) and the happenings on things that happened in her life and around her. I didn't know this until they reprinted them and added a history section in the back of the books. All I know is, growing up, I read them over and over and pored over a bunch of the pictures. I didn't get to read the last one, Betsy's Wedding until I was probably in high school because I couldn't find it. There's even a Betsy-Tacy Society, which is also something I didn't know until I was older.
Another book which comes to mind is Cheaper By The Dozen by Frank B. Gilbreth and Ernestine Gilbreth Cary. There's been movies made based on this book and there's even a sequel to the book called Belles On Their Toes by the same authors. (I've read both books, and I like the first book best). Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt star in movies based off the books, although, not the actual stories from the books (still good movies, though).
So, what are some of your favorite childhood books?
Have A Wandering Wednesday!
