Comments, we got comments! And since they’re hard to see on the site, we decided to devote a page just to helping everyone find them
IN DECEMBER 2015, we asked for favorite children’s books. Here are some responses:
*Just So Stories (read around the campfire at Calaveras Big Trees State Park); Little Lord Fauntleroy; Grimm’s Fairy Tales
*The Borrower’s series by Mary Norton. She brought that world so completely to life for me. I then read the books to my son, who used a screwdriver to ‘make a new door’ in the wall for the Borrowers. Even now I still love to re-read them and go back into that world. This is a great post, and Barbara was so right – you do have to bring the magic with you. And then carry it with you and never forget it.
*AND ANOTHER VOTE FOR: The Borrowers’ series by Mary Norton. I still re-read them now, many, many years after saving pennies to buy them.
*The Bushbaby by William Stevenson. Really great adventure set in Africa.
