Was there any greater joy for you as a child than convincing your mom or dad to read “just one more story” before bed or finally getting your hands on the next installment in your favorite series?
Man, those were the days.
The colors, pictures, fantastical worlds, and mundane-turned-magical events of life seen through the eyes of young narrators are just some of the reasons children’s literature should be treasured.
I hope you will take a minute to think fondly of the books you loved as a young person. And let’s face it, we still love them.
