My nephew is in town for another visit (YAY for cool aunt-ing) and I am so happy that he loves books!! His favorite book right now is Pat the Bunny. I don’t know if he’ll remember that this classic was his first favorite book, but we will.
My first favorite book – at least the one I remember – was Cinderella, and I still collect versions of it to this day. As a child, I was entranced by the magic of the story and all the various elements that make this such a beloved fairy tale. I even knew when my parents had ‘kipped a page in their umm… eagerness … to finish yet another reading. As an adult, I love the story even more because to me it is such a perfect picture of our story as Christians.
What about you? What was your first favorite book? How have you appreciated it differently as an adult?
