I want you all to know, though, that I believe books to be golden for adults too.
Each time I pick up one of the Little Golden Books Classics for re-reading, I am spirited off to a wonderful place of make-believe and my childish imagination runs wild.
Then, too, I often become engrossed in a new perspective of a book, the words or rhyme now enlightened by reason born of real life and living, as with when I recently read The Three Little Pigs for review purposes.
John Denver describes my feelings towards children and books best in his folk song Rhymes and Reasons.
I believe books for kids to be like the flowers - pure and sweet as the driven snow - and I wish this fact for every child of the earth to know as they read and grow.
One of my greatest pleasures is that of an author of a book for children to send me a signed copy of his or her latest publication. I enjoy the reading, the reviewing, and the raving about the book and the author.
You are sure to be introduced to many great authors and books here. That is my promise to you and to the children in your life.
Until we meet again ... Read, Review, Rave!
This is such a beautiful site! I do love childrens books, especially the Little Golden books. They hold such fond memories in addition to great stories.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Cynthia, and thanks for being my first commenter on my new blog! Yes, the Little Golden Books are big time special to me too.Delete
Ruthi, I just LOVE how bright, colorful and welcoming as well as informative you've made this blog! Truly you were made to be the cheerleader and guide for this topic. Really well done, my friend!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Margaret! Being a kid friendly blog I figured the children would appreciate a rainbow of books on the shelves.Delete
What a glorious new site. How I love the energy and passion that flows here. And, of course, you had me at "Rhymes and Reasons." Beautiful... just beautiful.ReplyDelete
Ah, Diana! I was hoping John Denver would touch the spirit of some and I'm not a bit surprised Rhymes and Reasons rested well with you.Delete
I have entered a joyful place here! Thanks for sharing your love for children through sharing the books they love, and doing so in such a colorful way!ReplyDelete
Claudia, I love that you feel like you are in a "joyful place!" I do plan to keep it that way.Delete
Truly this is your calling! That's one of my favorite John Denver songs, too--so sweet and so deep.ReplyDelete
I think you might be right, Charli! Oh yes, one of my favorites from Denver too.Delete
Very nicely done! I love the books on the sides.ReplyDelete
I recently won a girls bedtime devotions book. I can't wait to start reading it to the grandkids. It will make a good lens!
Bedtime devotions will make for great reading as you tuck those grandkids in for a good night of sleep, Marsha. I look forward to your lens about this book.Delete
