The Secret World of Og, by Pierre Berton – I loved this book, as did my kids – along with the animated version – http://youtu.be/lIE27NMfkfs.
The Water Babies! You have got to watch this! Delightful! http://youtu.be/6WdlQhFNa4c
The past week has been insane. My parents traveled to Canada for a wedding and instead of the trip taking seven hours, it took forty-eight. Thank you United Airlines. The last time my parents flew United, a six hour trip took two and a half days. There’s nothing like having your elderly parents stranded in airports and rotten hotels.
I don’t even want to talk about the rest. I think I’ll just order Waterbabies and watch it.
Three other favorite children’s stories (aside from Charlotte’s Web, by E. B. White) -
The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett
The Borrowers, by Mary Norton
The Mushroom Planet Series, by Eleanor Cameron.
Oh to be a kid again!
