Hi guys! It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday! TTT was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Today is the second day of July and it has been four years that the husband and I have been living in Oklahoma. It’s been an amazing four years and things have gotten better for both of us. As part of living here for four years, we’re officially starting to adult and start a new chapter of our lives. With that, I am becoming a bit more nostalgic and have requested that my family bring me some of the kids’ books I used to read when I was younger when they visit. My mother overdid it and brought all of them! Luckily, I do have room for them, but still. Here are some of my favourite picture books:
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss
Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig by Eugene Trivizas
The Bear Next Door by Ida Luttrell
Father Bear Comes Home by Else Holmelund Minarik
Looking for Henry by Elaine Livermore
The Poky Little Puppy by Janette Sebring Lowrey
The Monster at the End of this Book by Jon Stone
Go Dog Go by P.D. Eastman
Stellaluna by Janell Cannon
The Mitten by Jan Brett
These were some of the formative books I remember reading when I was little. I don’t remember when I got these books, a lot of them are my own with my name written in them in my mom’s handwriting. But I do remember reading through a lot of these whenever I would be in trouble in sent to my room. And I remember looking at these books and thinking they were my friends. Books still are my friends, and they are who I turn to when I still need help.
