I was shopping for Norah's Christmas presents today, and bought this book for her.
I'm pretty sure I told this story one year for Story League. I was in Borders and walked by it and BAM! I was shot right back to middle school Story League meetings. I grabbed the mosquito book, and then began looking for some of my other favorites from childhood.
I am slowly beginning to build up Norah's library, very slowly because books are expensive. I'll have to make more of an effort to run down to the used book store. And as I was walking around Borders today, I became more and more excited to read to Norah, to teach her to love to read.
Anyone want to share some of their favorite childhood or adolescent books?
