Day 332 of 365: They're Here!
All twenty-three of them! Baby Bennett's library has OFFICIALLY started!!
I joined a children's book club over the weekend with the promotion of this set of small hardbacks for an absolute STEAL -- just £4.99 for the lot! Of course, like many clubs, I must buy 4 more books in my first year with the club -- which will not be difficult. They even make it easier now because I can decline the Editor's Choice each month in advance via the web so I won't have to bother with sending a book back each time.
Anyone who knows me well, knows that Beatrix Potter is one of my favourite author/illustrators of all time and in fact, 'The Tale of Peter Rabbit' was the first story I learned to read on my own when I was only three. I was quite lucky to have had a dedicated mom with the time to read to me from the time I was just a baby.
Luckily Matt enjoys reading too (although I can't say that he has an obsession like mine with any children's books). Either way, our son will be blessed that his daddy and I can share our love of literature with him as well.
So, this is where I ask you, my readers...what is YOUR favourite children's book of all time? Is it one you read to your own children or one you remember growing up? Leave a comment and share your book suggestions!
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
