Do you have a favorite book from childhood? Have you read it as an adult? Was it just as good?
I don’t know if this was my favorite book but it was so meaningful to me. I talked about it two years ago when I posted about why you should read aloud to kids at any and all ages. My dad read Johnny Tremain to me when I was little. I’m pretty sure I didn’t have a sibling at the time which means I was under 8 years old. I re-read it in college some time and then wrote about the experience for my grad school essay but haven’t since then. I meant to read it last year for a reading challenge prompt (a book you loved as a child) but I never got around to it. I should definitely pick it up again to see if it’s just as enthralling. Some part of me thinks it won’t be and that it was the experience of being read to that I enjoyed the most.
