My new reading nook 📚🎃
I know it's a children's story (or is it really?) but I just had to pick this one for the #LetterH. This is one of my favorite holiday classics, in book and 1966 animated movie format. 💗💗💗
Harry Potter Series (really a tie for my first choice)
Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet
26 Jul-6 Aug (audiobook)
One cannot listen to this without recalling Saving Mr Banks and PL Travers‘ reaction to the Disneyfied film. I do love both but they are so very different.
This is a far less saccharine version and it is quite difficult to see why the children loved Mary Poppins so much. Beatrix could not work it out - she continued to wait for her to become nicer.
Mickey falls asleep and has an adventure with bakers in a kitchen. Admittedly, I‘m not a follower of Sendak (I‘m not a fan of Where the Wild Things Are…don‘t hate me!), but I thought I would give this Caldecott Honor a try. It was just okay for me. I was a bit horrified by what the bakers do to Mickey. And, as you view the illustrations, you will guess why this book has been challenged so much over the years.. #BBRC #PictureBook Letter I
I love how Mary Engelbreit is continuing to draw scenes from her favorite childhood books. I love this one. More here:
I've seen the #AlphabetGame bouncing around Litsy and thanks to a tag from @AmyK1 decided to jump in! I always have a lot of trouble playing these games because I'm terrible at remembering books under pressure. 😂 So I thought I would just start at the beginning of my shelves and go through until I found a book with A... and then keep going until I found a B... etc!
Afraid to Ride is by one of my all-time favorite author/illustrators, C.W. ⬇
