What a fun topic–am I right?? Who doesn’t love looking at, reading, enjoying books for young people! Here are some of the one’s I’ve found that I’d have loved at a younger age. Some are familiar to readers of this blog, hopefully a few will be surprises.
The Elementary School Years me
The Calpurnia Tate books
The Penderwicks series
The Traveling Cat Chronicles--My Mom would definitely have read this aloud to us
High School Me
I was a royal freak even then, so this would have been a good one.
ANYTHING by Julie Murphy, but especially Dumplin’
College and 20-Something me
I was a Kennedy-freak, too, thanks to my paternal grandmother’s Kennedy library.
I was a political science major.
And studied Russian and East European Studies
And was a political junkie.
