I read a lot as a kid. Big shocker, right? Books were always a way for me to experience other worlds, and to procrastinate doing my homework, of course. There were so many books I loved as a kid. Different books at different ages: Thee Hannah was one that stuck with me, and I still love Go, Dog. Go!, don’t you?
But if I had to pick just one, I’d have to go with A Little Princess by Frances Hodges Burnett. Maybe it was my age when I read it and my active imagination, but I could picture Sara’s attic room so perfectly and spent hours imagining what it would be like to be her. I think the story of hope and perseverance and inner strength somehow became a part of me.
What was your favorite book growing up?
