I'm joining Miss Melanie premiere link up called Favorite Things Thursday.
Week # 1
Show Us Your Favorite Book
(sorry but I had to narrow it down to 4)
The Lion's Paw was my all-time favorite book of my childhood. My favorite teacher, Mrs. Thorpe, read it to us in the fourth grade. It took place in the state I was raised in so I felt so familiar with the settings. I read it more times than I can count. I loved that book and I loved Mrs. Thorpe. She instilled a love of reading in me. She finished reading it right before Christmas break and it has been a bittersweet memory for me as she was transferred to another school in our district. I missed her terribly.
In Jr. High (wow, I'm really dating myself) we were assigned the book, To Kill a Mocking Bird" to read. It was the first book I read that I couldn't put down because I just had to figure out the mystery. I loved the book and later saw the movie and loved it also.
The last book that I read has become one my favorites.
Through Ann Voskamp's writings, she has taught me to be thankful in all things. A lesson I wish I had learned a long time ago because it has change me forever.
