In honor of Author Appreciation Week, I want to share with you authors who made a difference in my life. Today I’ll focus on authors I read in childhood (the challenge being I won’t mention authors/books I’ve discussed here before). Tomorrow I’ll focus on authors I discovered later on.
Thank you, Jean Little, for your beautiful story about friendship and courage.
Robert C. O’Brien, your world of rats and mice made me race back from recess for reading time (thanks, Mrs. Klein, for reading to us daily).
Mary Stolz, thank you for helping me see the world through others’ eyes.
Dr. P. L. Travers, thank you for creating a series I adored.
Margaret Sidney, thank you for stories where love wins out in the end.
Frank and Ernestine Gilbreth, I loved every minute I spent with your family.
Which authors did you enjoy as a child?
