Today I want to talk about a book that I fell in love with at the age of six years old. I attended my very first book fair at my favorite elementary school (52nd Street) to be exact and that is where I and this book met and it was my very first purchase.
So proud was I to pay my money for a book I absolutely wanted. You know what else? It’s a purchase that I have never regretted.
This book had such a great impact on my life that I still have it today and I continue to reference back to it, even now. I am also currently looking to purchase a newer edition just to have.
The book is called “Round the Corner” written by The Bank Street Reader and it was published in 1966. Ever since I can remember I’ve always had a vivid imagination, love to daydream and have always enjoyed stories, poetry and of course much more and that is what this book has to offer. It is a mixture of stories, poetry, play’s and pictures that is a lot of fun.
This book teaches upstanding values, helps build confidence, vocabulary and expands your mind. So I guess you can say I’m feeling a little nostalgic about when life was simple, fun and exciting and you wanted to learn. Ah-the good old days!
If you want to travel back in time with me to a place that offered innocence, joy and an imagination of a safe environment then purchase this book for you and your children, you’ll love where it takes you.
