Since It's Children's Book Week, Tell Me: What's Your Favorite Children's Book?
Interesting story: my mom loaned it to someone who forgot to return it. My mom was frustrated (see my love for said book above), and always hoped she'd find it.
Years later, she found it at the local secondhand bookstore--no lie. It was 25 cents. My name is still written inside, in careful cursive letters, including my old address. Fate boomeranged this book back, and Pippi sits on my shelf again. And I still hope to have a veranda one day...
How about you? What's your favorite children's book?
