Lately I've been roaming the aisles of the children's section at my local library. What a treasure trove of literature!
I got started because I wanted to use some 'rabbit' quotations on some of my blog postings. Indeed there have been a lot of wonderful 'rabbit' books written over time.
Many of them classics, such as: "The Tale of Peter Rabbit", "The Velveteen Rabbit", "Winnie the Pooh" and of course "Alice in Wonderland". Sometimes the rabbit is the hero, other times he's the bystander.
As I wandered the aisles I thought, "why not add a couple of these to my book pile?" Why not take myself back to the 8-year-old girl who read everything she could get her hands on and spent many a quiet summer afternoon curled up in a chair moving through words to a magical, mystical, elsewhere? Why not?
