    Me too! The only reason I wrote my book was to try to capture that certain something that I couldn’t find in modern adult fiction. I wanted my book to have characters I could fall in love with like the ones in Anne Of Green Gables, Little House on the Prairie, etc. What are your favorite children’s books?

      I always enjoyed “The Boxcar Children”, “Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators”, and I think the Narnia stories are by far my favorite. Reading them as a young child and then reading them as an adult showed me that the same story really was two different stories, and the only thing that changed was my age and general knowledge of life and religion. And understanding them as an adult or child, the stories are amazing either way!

        I LOVE CS Lewis and enjoyed the Narnia series, but really love The Screwtape Letters. My favorite thing when I was teaching was when we read a book aloud. I’m with you, children’s books–good ones–capture a part of us that never gets old.
