Thrifting For Old Childhood Books In The City
"My admiration for reading started in the classroom and I've loved it ever since".
For as long as I can remember, reading has been one of my favorite past times in the whole wide world. When I was in elementary school I was at the top of my class every year in our Accelerated Reader program and I always made my best grades in ALL of my English Language Arts and Reading classes! Needless to say, your girl was in love with books and it showed all throughout my educational career as a student. Every day I would get so excited because I was ready to go to the library and find a new book to fall in love with. I loved everything from Berenstain Bears to If You Give A Mouse A Cookie! Who remembers any of those??

It was books like those that made me the happiest in life and most importantly, defined my childhood.

That's why I decided that today would be the day that I would get up and head to the thrift store to pick up a few of my favorite childhood books. As many of you may know, I am applying to Graduate school to become a teacher and I firmly believe it is never too early to start building your own personal library! I know that students have amazing books that they read for their generation demographic but I would love to introduce the kiddos to some of those old fashioned books I read as a child. I know this generation of people love to keep things fresh and moving onward but I really do believe some of the things we promote to children should go back to the old school ways! AKA child learning mechanisms such as kindness, respect, and individuality!

Sylvester and the Magic Pebble

So there is a little run down of all of the books that I purchased today! I really enjoyed taking a trip down memory lane and reminsing about all of the loving books that I read as a kid. I don't care what anyone says but the 90's kids books are the absolute best! Ha! Anyways, what were some of your favorite books to read as a child?

Always Living and Forever Learning,
