Today I'm doing something a bit different. It's my birthday so instead of writing about one picture book, I figure I would make a quick list of the most important books of my childhood (picture books, chapter books and young adult books...basically any book that meant something to me and that I read before high school. So here it goes in no particular order:
The Adventures of Tintin by Herge
Asterix the Gaul by Gosciny
Frederick by Leo Lionni
Mouse Soup by Arnold Lobel
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery
The Neverending Story by Michael Ende
The list goes on an on...but many of them I read in Spanish and are sadly out of print so I promise further research to include them later. Happy Birthday to me!
