Do you believe in Giants?

My Favourite book when I was a child

There is a few books that I remember from my childhood.  One book that really stands out is The BFG by Roald Dahl. I love this book.  Those of you who aren't familiar with this book, BFG stands for Big Friendly Giant. This book was read to me and all my school buddies by my Grade 6 teachers.  

My girls were lucky this year. Santa gave them a range of Roald Dahl books which included The BFG. I am looking forward to reading this book to them and taking them on a journey that is bursting with creativity,frustration, love, mystery, friendship exploration, laughter, and many other heart warming aspects. The best thing about this book is that you can read it at 5 or 95 and still love it just the same, and want to read it over and over again!

Snozzcumber anyone?

What was your favourite book when you were a child?

I had a hard time remembering the books from my childhood but I finally remembered a couple
One was "King Midas and his Golden Touch" & another was "A Fish Out Of Water" by Helen Palmer Geisel she was the wife of Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss).
