What was your first favorite book?
While I’m sure I had a book that I made mom and dad read to me over and over when I was little, the first book I really remember falling in love with was the Mother Goose book that was at my grandmother Ruby’s house.
It was A Treasury of Mother Goose, illustrated by Hilda Offen. I loved this book so much, that it’s one of the things I kept after my grandmother passed away. You can see it displayed with some of my other children’s literature in the photo above. That books meant so much to me that I bought a brand new copy for my niece, Charli. It was used as a signing book at her baby shower, so she’ll have that to enjoy along with the poems and illustrations.
