I am slowly running out of books from my childhood but have been on the phone to my mum to send me some more that she has on her shelf. I love looking back at books that I have enjoyed as a child and I am finding so many of you also have enjoyed them as children too and have shared your fond memories.
Enid Blyton has never strayed far from children’s bookshelves, and her books are still so very popular today. One thing I see as a Librarian is that parents trust the content in Enid Blyton books because they read them as a child, they know the content and understand them to be a safe read for their child.
This is another precious book that my God Mother Aunty Kerry gave me (treasured even more now she has passed away). She has always nurtured my faith, and this book she gifted me at my christening taught me the Lord’s Prayer.
Each time I do a Throwback Thursday post, I am always reminded how very blessed I am to have been exposed to the wonderful world of literacy from such an early age. I am sure most of us have grown up with the Little Golden Books, I know that they were a staple book in our house and we had many. I still have Heidi that was gifted to me from my nanny and poppy just before I turned 1.
It wasn’t until I been until I have been going through these books that I truly realised just how much my aunt supported my love of reading and literacy. From such a young age I was blessed by all the adults around me to be gifted so many books.
