It was like Christmas….
A mystery box was found in our garage. When Hubby opened this mystery box, he discovered his favorite books from childhood!
We’ve had fun reading Hubby’s favorites from when he was a kids… Ferdinand by Munro Leaf, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, by Judith Viorst, and Splish Splash! by Ethel and Leonard Kessler.
My boys never really ask what we read as kids. When they ask us about our childhoods its about what computer games we played or whether there were actually school field trips waaaaay back when, so its been very fun to see their imaginations after reading these books!
It almost seems appropriate to pull “old” books out around Christmastime, like pulling out photo albums around birthdays. The magic that appears during story time at night, all cuddled up on the couch reading books that are so familiar to the touch and to the ear…..
Think about how you can introduce something familiar to you, maybe from your childhood, but new to your children this Christmas to bring about a renewed sense of wonder….and share it below!
