Through The Eyes Of A Child

Through the eyes of a child!

Are you looking for a book, a comprehensive overview of children's literature? Here is a remarkable book with tons of information regarding appropriate books for children's ages. (over 600 pages!) 

Through The Eyes Of A Child: An Introduction to Children's Literature

I found the Eighth Edition in the book store next door to our local library.  I already have the third edition (a gift),  but we are so fortunate to have a community who loves to recycle used books

Do you have a favorite local book store in your town?

 I love reading children's books. I look forward to Friday's Book Memes. Won't you join us?

Here is my sentence (or two) from Page 56.

"Greenaway continued illustrating books that reflected happy days of childhood and the blossoming apple trees and primroses that had dotted the English countryside of her youth. In a letter to her friend, John Ruskin, Greenaway described her view of the world:

I go on liking things more and more, seeing them more and more beautiful. Don't you think it is a great possession to be able to get so much joy out of things that are always there to give it, and do not change?"

Today's question (as it's Remembrance Day and all) is 'who is your favorite soldier and how are they saving the world?' It can be fictional or real. Parajunkee and Alison Can Read

 I am thankful for my Dad and my four Uncles (many more cousins) who served in the military to protect our freedom during WWI and WWII. Happy Veterans Day!
