Picking up these books from the library made me feel a bit #childlike. But that's okay with me. #MayBookFlowers

Yellowpigeon Dragons love tacos is hilarious. I still am wary of spicy salsa. 2y

For the #Childlike prompt, I decided to do a throwback to the day I organized my nieces' and nephews' bookshelves. If you're interested in some of my finds from that, search the #KidLitNostalgia tag. #MayBookFlowers

I used to love Milly-Molly-Mandy as a child. It drove my mum mad reading all of the names over and over again! Haha

#MayBookFlowers #day22 #childlike Some of my favorites from when I was a kid - and I couldn't resist picking up some new copies at my son's Scholastic Book Fair!

LadyBrik I loved these as a kid and reliving them as I read them to my son now is the absolute best experience! 2y
cleoh I loved these when I was younger! I'm pretty sure I read my library's copy of the yellow one until it fell apart 🙈 2y

Day 22 #childlike #maybookflowers Oooh, I have some catching up to do! I recently weeded out my bookcases and was able to unpack and shelve my favourite childhood books, including my beloved Trixie Belden books.

I know child narrators can be VERY hit or miss but Jack's voice is one that I will never forget. #MayBookFlowers #Childlike

MrBook I'm finding that to be the case with "My Grandmother Wanted Me To Tell You She's Sorry". 2y
lynneamch Put off reading this for a long time. Then it was chosen by my book club. So glad I read it with them. Good discussion. 2y
Reagan-reads Child narrators are so challenging to read but the payoff can be so great. Another good one is 2y
MicheleinPhilly @Reagan-reads Oh I've read that one. Scared the crap out of me. 2y

I first discovered the Green Sky trilogy in my middle school library and fell in love. It was already out of print then and I set about trying to collect copies in whatever format I could. I've always been big on nature and remember wishing I also lived high in the trees of a forest village. 🌳🍄🌿

#cliffhangers #childlike #maybookflowers. This covers both- I remember waiting at the bookstore with my kids until midnight when the next books were released. Taking our two copies home and then not wanting to read it, because then it would be over. Lying in bed with my kids wishing we could go to Hogwarts- magical, childlike perfect times.

This book makes me feel all the feels. It throws me right back into my childhood, turns around and throws me back into parenthood. I absolutely love it, and am almost guaranteed to cry. #childlike #maybookflowers
