Last List-Day Wednesday we looked at restaurants on Valley Mills Dr. here in Waco. Great suggestions by "Ang." I keeping overlooking Pei Wei as a dining option... it is now on my near-future lunch list.
For the Middle Eastern insurgents and snow-bound Midwesterners who follow these posts, I thought a the universal topic of children's literature would be appropriate. To jog your reticent memory, some classic Persian children stories are: The Sheep and the Jackal; The Camel and the Jackal; The Baby Goat and the Jackal; and The Good & Loving Boy Hassani.
The topic of this List-Day Wednesday is quasi-autobiograpohical:
What are your favorite childhood stories or books?
As with any group project, a few rules are needed. There will be a topic. As far as the length of the list, I have given this some thought. A list of One, is not a list. Two to a list is too harsh: only first and last place. The minimum entries shall be Three, and Three it shall be. For the sake of brevity, Five will be the max.
Here is my list:
1) Winnie the Pooh - As I have suggested before, I like maps and 100 Acre Wood may be the source of my map fetish.
2) Bear Story - James Whitcomb Riley. Now that I have returned to the story as a parent, I am a bit concerned about the violence. As a child, a bear that slowly gets its legs shot off was very suspenseful.
3) Stuart Little - I had a pet mouse. My mouse could not drive.
4) Goodnight Gorilla - As a parent reading to a child, this is a newly discovered favorite. Great illustrations, few words.
