After obsessively saving and collecting a lifetime's worth of children's books, studying Children's Literature in college, teaching preschool, going to law school (I liked school) and finally having my own tiny book partner to read more stories to than I thought possible, I decided to jump in and really talk about my passion because I LOVE children's books. I wanted to write about and document what my daughter and I were reading.
Books can change and influence a life. They can transform childhood. They certainly shaped my own childhood. Growing up in Hawaii was lovely, but in my heart, I was a girl who wanted to be wandering around on wind-swept moors on a foggy grey day. Through books, I was able to do that. Ironically, I live now in a place that doesn't deliver the kind of weather that Hawaii does, and I pine for the days of eternal blue skies and 75 degree weather that Hawaii usually offers on a regular basis. Oh well...
