TGIF - Special Books

Ginger at GReads! has a great TGIF question this week:

Most Valuable Book: From your personal collection of books, which ones hold the most value to you - is it signed by the author? or maybe it's your favorite story of all time? Share it with us.

I have lots of signed books, books that are my favorites, things like the Harry Potter books, my first edition Gone With the Wind (don't get too excited, it's absolutely falling apart...not worth much), but I think the books that mean the most to me are the books I read to my children when they were young. Most of them OVER and OVER again. I've posted about some of these in my Monday Memories posts.

The first one that always comes to mind is Officer Buckle and Gloria because my son would absolutely crack up EVERY TIME we read this one. There's a reason it won the Caldecott!

My daughter was a more voracious reader, so there's not just one book that stands out, because we read all of them...a lot... I remember reading The Cat in the Hat and the other books in that series. She also enjoyed Steven Kellogg's Best Friends. We read that one quite a bit, and she really liked it. And there's Strega Nona...I could go on, but I'll stop. I guess I just want to thank Ginger for the trip down memory lane.

And, enjoy those little ones while you have them. They grow up so my children and I  read and discuss Hunger Games, and Divergent and things like that (which isn't a bad thing either!) Have a great weekend everyone. Thanks for stopping by, and come back soon!

  1. Oh I had forgotten all about the Steven Kellogg book's. Those were some of my favorites as a kid!

    Great choices!

  2. Loved hearing the story behind why these books are so valuable to you. And I have to agree - some of the most memorable books are the ones that I read with the kids - the youngest especially loved Green Eggs and Ham - and the ones that the oldest and I read together and discuss.


  3. Great to know why you love those books!

    Here is my post!

  4. I love that you picked children books. Great post!!


Thanks for visiting! I LOVE comments! I've received several awards and because of the time involved, I now must make this an award free blog.
