Here I am in 2nd grade (left) and 3rd grade (right.) Can you see that my mom did something VERY devastating to my hair in between those two grade!! I really hated it.She had blow it dry every day in order for it to "look right." What a pain!
Here you can see my mismatched Big Woods books,along with the letter and diary books that aren't really part of the main series. These books I have were printed in 1971.
Some other books that played a huge roll in my early book loving years:
*The Nancy Drew mysteries
*Beverly Cleary books: specifically Fifteen, which my guess is the first romantic book I ever read
*The Box Car Children (which I didn't know was a series at the time): I made my brothers play Boxcar Children over and over and over again!
* Where the Red Fern Grows: books can make you cry!
* Mandy (by Julie Andrews): was another book I couldn't get enough of. A lot like The Secret Garden only different.
Hopefully you'll have a chance to participate this week in Weekly Geeks and let us know what got you started on the path to reading!
