When I first thought of having my own blog, the name I thought of was Children's Literature Nana. Because I love children's books and love to share them with all children (and adults when they will listen), it seemed only natural that my focus would be children's literature. However, when it came time to create my blog, I was starting a new adventure and decided that I would focus on that part of my life.
From time to time in He Leadeth Me, I will share thoughts about some of the wonderful children's books that are out there for both children and adults to enjoy.
My favorite book of all time (you will probably hear me say that many times) is Charlotte's Web by E. B. White. It was written the same year that I was born so if you are like my former 4th grade students, you will be hustling to find out the copyright date. I'll save you the time--it was published in 1952.
I love Wilbur the pig, but most of all I love Charlotte the resourceful spider. The final quote in the book is my very favorite--"It is not often someone comes along that's a true friend and a good writer. Charlotte was both."
I would love to know what your favorite children's book is! Please post a comment and let me know.
