When I was a child I loved to read books. My mom has pictures of me having fallen asleep reading and in first grade, I was placed in the advanced readers circle which I was VERY proud of. I must have been if I still remember it! I really want Oscar to have the same love of books that I have so recently, I purchased a few board books with Sesame Street characters on them. One of the books features Grover. While flipping through it, I had a flashback to my favorite childhood book of all time! Somehow it had buried itself deep in my subconscious because I haven’t thought of this book in years, if not decades. It was called The Monster at The End of This Book and I LOVED reading it over and over, and over again. I can physically recall the anticipation of the end, as if maybe THIS time it will be different. I can’t believe I forgot about it and I have been smiling just thinking about reading it to Oscar.
With Where the Wild Things Are coming out in theatres, and various other children’s books being made into movies, I think these kinds of memories are likely to pop up. So what was your favorite book? What made it so special to you?
