Dewey's Read-a-Thon...hour 2

Hour 2...

Mini-Challenge...Back in the Day Children's Book

The first series that pops into mind are the books from Anne of Green Gables. Oh I lurved this series. I actually found a picture of me opening these books as a Christmas present when I was in second grade. My big sister bought me the series and I cherished them for so long. Unfortunately, they got lost during a move in high school, but I did buy a new set. I can never not have them in my own personal library.

Then, there's the fave author Maurice Sendak. Of course I heart Where the Wild Things Are. A book that I read all the time to my nephews. But the book I hearted more when I was in kindergarten was Chicken Soup with Rice.

There are many other great books, but these were my absolute faves!!!

  1. Love this idea of the mini's - really keeps people engaged I think. That's great!

    The "The Walk..." treating you well? Feeling like you need a walk? ::grin::

  2. We're just underway
    But I wanted to say
    I know you'll do a great job today!

    Enjoy your read a thon!

  3. (Non)traditional Buddhist readathon blessing:

    Just as the books fill the shelves,
    Pile together on the floor and stack up on the table
    So may the joy of the readathon
    Flow forth to brighten your day and lift your spirit.
    Books already read, books in progress and books yet to be read.

    By the power of every word on the page
    May your book be delightful,
    As scary as Lovecraft’s Cthulhu
    Or as sweet as a box of See’s candy.

    Let the power of the images evoked by words
    Keep you stay awake long through the night
    May no obstacle impede
    Your day filled with books.

    For all of those who are reading today
    Who follow in the path of Dewey
    May your day be filled with the four blessings
    Of fabulous books, tasty snacks, comfy chairs and joy.
