B is for Beloved Books

Thursday, February 2, 2012

On Day Two of Souvenir Foto School.  I know that I've photographed these books sometime in the past, but I wanted to share them again because I really love them.  The stack is definitely missing my most favorite, the Ramona Quimby series by Beverly Cleary, but I didn't have time to get them together.   For the senses, these definitely touch on the sense of smell.  That old library book scent is always cozy to me.  A rainy day with a good book and an afternoon snack is one of my most cherished pastimes.  The other sense would be touch with book creases and rips as I turn the pages.  Sight with the yellowing paper and lovely illustrations.  I love that I get to read with my boys and that they enjoy the same stories that I have loved as a kid.  We are currently reading Ramona and Her Father.  It's precious to see how they can relate to the same emotions that Ramona feels, and that I also felt at age 7.  Re-reading these stories helps me to remember and to understand.

  1. Beautiful! Some of the dearest memories for me of my son's childhood is quiet moments snugggling on the couch as I read to him, and later, as he grew older, when he read to me. :)
