Daily Prompt: Bedtime Stories
What was your favorite book as a child?
Did it influence the person you are now?
have always loved books. For many years my dad would read a story to my sister and I before during bedtime. Once I learned to read, I read anything I could. I hid away often in books. I was one of those that would sneak a flashlight to read under my covers.
My very favorite book as a child, without a doubt was the book, Heidi by Johanna Spyri. I loved to imagine going up that mountain and living with the old grandfather and having Peter as a brother. Maybe it was because my grandpa had such a special place in my heart and I didn’t have a brother. It seemed like the perfect life in many ways. Now even as an adult, I love the movie as well.
How did it influence me? Well, I have a daughter named Heidi! I always knew I’d want a little girl named Heidi. And now she is going to be a mama! 🙂 She loves books as well and is collecting books for her little ones.
