what i would rather be doing

if i could have my dream job it would be to own my own childrens book store. i so bad want to own my childrens book store. i love childrens books. all kinds. picture books. story books. pop-up books, board books, oh the list could go on and on. i think my love for books started when i was little. my dad would go out of town for work and he would on occasion bring me back pop-up books. i can kick myself ten times for not keeping them. and they would always be educational books. i can remember two in particular. one was about the nina, pinta, and the santa maria. and then i vaguely can remember one about jungle animals. they were the kind that would pop-up or you would have to pull a tab and it would make an illustration move. anyways…..i think also having a background in education, i know the importance of reading, even at an early age. it’s sad b/c to love childrens books so much i have a poor collection. some of my favorites are the giving tree, knuffle bunny, caps for sale, amazing grace and anything by eric carle.

i would be a great childrens book store owner……what is your favorite childrens book? or even better, what is a dream of yours that you have yet to fulfill but still plan to?
