Three books I loved as a child? This is a hard one! Luckily these aren't superlative lists ... these are just three of the many books that I loved as a child. I'm trying to think of ones I haven't talked about a bunch before.
1. Raggedy Ann Stories by Johnny Gruelle - I adored these stories about Raggedy Ann and Andy. They hobnob with fairies and other toys and play with kittens. These books also introduced me to my favorite word -- grotto (only slightly tarnished by the Playboy Mansion).
2. The Nancy Drew Series by Carolyn Keene - I think that almost every time I came home from the library I had checked out one of these. I don't remember much about the stories themselves but I remember loving the suspense and the independence.
3. No Flying in the House by Betty Brock - This was one of the ones that I re-read over and over. I bought a copy a few years ago and liked it just as much now as I did then --though for entirely different reasons. This book caused me to spend hours of my childhood trying to kiss my elbow. You see, if you can do that you're a fairy.
Loving this short trip back in time,
