Children's Books

As a child, I was always an avid reader.  My mom was a preschool teacher and taught me and my sisters to read at an early age, I always had an love for books.  Libraries and book stores were my go-to as a kid.  I remember my mom would give us an allowance, 90% of the times mine's would always go to the bookstore!  That new book smell is the greatest!    

My favorite go-to book as a child was Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters by John Steptoe

Mufaro's Beautiful Daughter by John Steptoe

Alexander and the Horrible, Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst

Corduroy by Don Freeman

Viola Davis wrote a book about Corduroy as well, called Corduroy Takes a Bow  

Judy Blume Anything and Shel Silverstein-those books were always checked out at the library.
