Thinking Back Thursday

I do not like them,
I do not like
Green eggs and ham.

I was four years old when I started reading on my own. And I still remember my first book: Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss. It had been a Christmas gift from my father, who had helped teach me to read by reading to me every night before. That book became absolutely precious to me... and later the memories even moreso due to more personal reasons. To this day, it is still listed as my favorite childhood story. I can recite it from memory. Haha!

Today's "think-back" question:

What was your first childhood book when you learned to read? Did it become a lifetime favorite/hold a special place in your heart?

  1. The first book I remember reading by myself was, "One fish, Two Fish. Red Fish, Blue Fish" also by Dr. Seuss :) My mom would listen to me read it every day(more than once) and when she had heard me read it about ten times I'd go and read it to whichever one of my siblings I could get to listen lol. I've always loved rhyming books ever since :)

    To this day it's still one of my favorite childhood stories :)
