Do you ever have one of those moments when something from your childhood that you had long since forgotten flashes into your head? Maybe a person you forgot you ever knew, an event you'd let slip from your mind, or a book that suddenly came back to you?
A few months ago, I remembered how much I used to love the Katie John series.
The other day, I flashed back to Thornton Burgess.
Did anyone else read Thornton Burgess? I was captivated by his stories as a child. It didn't hurt that he wrote about "Laughing Brook" and the park where his house was, named Laughing Brook Park, was just a short drive from where I grew up. But I truly loved the stories about Johnny Chuck and Little Joe Otter and Grandfather Frog.
Anyway, on Sunday I searched online and reread all the stories from Old Mother West Wind. You can too! Or, you could buy a boxed set of Burgess for a child who likes furry creatures.
What are your forgotten treasures? If you can remember, of course....
