The wonder of books is that you can do anything, go anywhere you'd like and never leave home. It's the perfect journey for a child...or a grown-up. I look forward to reading a good book every chance I get. How about you? Childhood favorites?

Love of Books!
My love of books began with my mother's own love of the written word. Bedtime stories and poems were read aloud almost every single evening. And these shared hours were some of the most joyous of times through my early years. We traveled to Oz where we experienced amazing adventures filled with wondrous creatures, magical potions, and scary witches. Lassie, in her hard fought journey through the countryside, brought us relief as she finally found her way back home. With The Bobbsey Twins, we learned that two sets of twins are better than one, leading to all sorts of fascinating activities. And these were just a few of the favorites.
