Caution : I was born in 1967 :P
Looking back to what I have read...I have to admit, I was not much of a reader as I am now.
I decided I want to share the books that I can remember as far back as First grade.
These books sparked my interest and stayed in my memories.
#1 - Richard Scarry's - What Do People Do All Day?
#2 - Richard Scarry's - Best Word Book Ever!
“I'm not interested in creating a book that is read once and then placed on the shelf and forgotten. I am very happy when people have worn out my books, or that they're held together by Scotch tape.”
― Richard Scarry
Richard Scarry's books are the earliest books I remember and love. I still read them to my preschool class today.
Love a good mystery! I enjoyed reading these books when I was in 5th and 6th grade.
#4 - A Ring of Endless Light by Madeleine L'Engle
A book I absolutely loves and it introduced me to Madeleine L'Engle's other books, such as her well known book A Wrinkle in Time. This book also became my daughters favorite.
#5 The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
On of the most memorable books I read in school. I now have discussions at school with my older children in our after-school care program, who have read it.
