Tuesday's Question: What children's book made the most impact on you when you were a child?
Tuesday's Question is easy all you have to do is answer the question and I will link your comment back to your blog and list it on the first page. But. you're not a blogger, I will list your name. Click on the read more hack and you can read my answer, and I can read yours.
(Thank you Sandee of Comedy Plus for your answer; http://comedyplus.blogspot.com/ and to Grace of Dragon's Alley, for your comments. I truly appreciate it.)
Before I answer, Id' like to ask you to search your hearts for your answer, because when a child reads or is read aloud books, it remains them throughout their lifetime. Books and music inhabit a special magic, by rereading a book or listening to a song you are transported back to the time, place, and feelings you had when you read the book, or listened to certain songs.
Alright, my friends, What children's book made the most impact on you when you were a child?
The book can be a favorite, or an adult novel if you cannot remember.
My favorite children's book was Stuart Little and Charlottes web, both written by E.B.White.
My mother read them both to my brothers and me, and I remembered empathizing with Wilbur in Charlottes Web, and Stuart little when he fell in the down the drain. I read both of these stories to my son, and when I need I felt a sense of security and warm. It was like I was at home on my mother's lap again struggling to keep my eyes open.
Now, it's your turn...
Thanks for visiting A Nice Place In The Sun, and have a great Tuesday!

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons
Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.
Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.
Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light
She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free
For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well
Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
