The question for this final week of August is: What is your favorite childhood book or movie?
If I had to pick one book as my favorite, it would have to be The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. This book stands out in my mind because I remember my sixth grade teacher, Mrs. Cleary, reading it out loud to the class everyday after lunch. I'm sure other teachers read other books to me, but this one I remember; she made it come alive! In addition to being a fantastic adventure story, it let me dream that one day I too would find a magic door into another world where I could be a princess. What a wonderful childhood fantasy!
I still love The Chronicles of Narnia books and movies and have passed my love of them onto my children. Although I have to disagree with Edmund, Turkish Delight is not irresistible.
Do you have a favorite book or movie from your childhood? What made it memorable for you?
