What was your favorite book as a child? Did it influence the person you are now?
I don’t think I ever had a bedtime story read or told to me, but that was okay, I was blessed with enough imagination to make up my own.
I remember, in 3rd grade, I began to check out books from our school library. There was a whole series, and I can’t remember the name of them. If anybody remembers them, please let me know. The year would have been around 1967-68. I would like to look them up and see if any of them are still available. The series was about President’s and other famous people. The books would tell stories of their childhood and how they came to be who/what they were. Each book was full of values and virtues. I loved them and I know they had a part in shaping me into who I am today.
In later years, around age 12-13, I read ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’. It had a very profound influence on me. I loved the book and have read it several times since.
