Image of Once Upon a TimeIt's starts with the simple line, "Once upon a time . . ." and before you know it, a child is lost in stories of far away lands and excellent adventures.  Do you remember the first time you realized books could take you places?  I do.  It was Nancy Drew and The Secret of the Old Clock.  Before I knew it, I was riding along with Nancy, Bess & George in her little blue convertible, solving mysteries and going on adventures.  Ah, books, where would we be without them?

Free events that get kids interested in reading, music, and the arts in general are great.  I hope you have a big turnout Tish!

The first book I got lost in?  And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street!  I remember imagining all those great things happening right out in front of our house.  This is going to be a great event!

Liz & Bill ~  Pretty awesome (CA hates it when I use that word!); isn't it!

Anita ~  I suspect they will be filled to capacity.  Just as an fyi:  That's just my outside Blog, not WP.

William ~  Makes you wonder why it was ever dropped -- just glad it's back!

Cinnamon ~  The girls will be so excited!

Tish ~ Ah, my love of Nancy Drew books (I secretly still read them)  Teaching children to love reading is wonderful because it becomes a secret journey they can do alone with every new book they read ~

Somehow certain childhood books stick with us. My mind holds The Shy Stegosarus of Cricket Creek in a place above all others. Sure, I read the Hardy Boys and Rennet Dessert, but I can still feel the texture of that one book.

Karen ~ So do I!  CA still has all of her originals and is anxiously awaiting the day Zoe is ready to read them.

Glenn ~ The scent of our local library remains with me.  Such a lovely memory.
