The Think Write Thursday topic for April 6, 2017 is to tell us about a book you wish you could read again for the first time. Happy writing. Carole and Kat
When I read this prompt, two book titles popped into my head. When our girls were in elementary school, they participated in a book group during recess. I was one of the leaders. I would read the books and then meet with the other leaders to come up with discussion questions. (A side note: the kids ate lunch during these discussion sessions and it was looking at the cafeteria tray food that made me rethink the idea that the girls should eat a school lunch once a week – yuck!)
I have re-read The Bridge to Terabithia a few times over the years and I still love this story. What I remember about Afternoon of the Elves is that almost every student wished for a sequel. They did not want this story to end. Reading those books alongside those students was a highlight.
If I think back a bit further, I would probably choose The Hundred Dresses. That was a story that I fell into. I wanted to be friends with Wanda, to spend an afternoon with her, drawing pictures of dresses.
Now that we have a tiny person in our lives, I know there will be good books coming into our lives. What joy! What treasures!
