Today I want to share some of the books from my childhood. I saw this idea a couple weeks ago and thought it was really fun! These are from ages 4 to mid-teens.
I've always loved stories, and my mom read to me quite often as a child. I really struggled with reading and couldn't decipher anything more than the bare basics (fat cat on a mat type things would leave me in tears of frustration) until around 11 years old. Then my mom got me my first audiobook, and within a few months, everything clicked and I could read anything and everything with ease. It opened up a beautiful world!
|This is one of the first books I remember my mom reading. I loved this edition for the illustrations, and the fact that the book belonged to my great grandma.|
|Being read this book is actually my first really clear memory.|
|The start of the audiobook love.|
|My aunt and I are only four years apart, and anytime I stayed over we'd read these books.|
|One of the first books I read after figuring out how to read.|
|As godawful as this book and series is, I owe so much to it. It's what really, really sparked my love of independent reading, romance, and the obsession that comes with an addictive series.|
What about you? What books did you enjoy as a kid?
