I had one of those ‘moments’ today as I passed between the bookcases in the bedroom. It is odd the things that make it through the veneer of calm acceptance. In this case, it was the characters in books… characters I had first met as I snuggled within the circle of my mother’s arms.

Nice reblog, Jennie. Sue is a great writer.

She really is, Pete. I read this post many times thinking, “This is the depth of understanding that I constantly want to convey.”
Thank you very much for sharing this post, Jennie. Children’s stories must be the most loved and the most influential we ever read…or are read. I love them still.
You penned, perfectly, how important children’s stories are. Frankly, I feel they are often far more powerful and interesting than adult’s books. Really. Thank you for writing this marvelous post, Sue!
I agree, Jennie…and the best ones still teach, at whatever age you read them.
Indeed they do!
