This is not your average book review post. I did just buy the book, again. I had a copy of it many years ago.
It's a review of a children's book.
Not the usual Cinderella, or Snow White, or The Three Little Pigs, or any other of the many Little Golden Books I had as a child. My favorite was about the goats.
Why The Three Billy Goats Gruff as my favorite? Maybe because it was about a family. Although, it be a family of goats. The goats were brothers. Or maybe deep down I had a thing for trolls. I don't really know.
Maybe I liked that the brothers were not afraid of the troll. Ok, maybe a little afraid at first. But they show that you can be brave and strong no matter what you face.
I stopped in the bookstore yesterday to get a book with sounds for a birthday gift for one of my littles. And there in plain sight was The Three Billy Goats Gruff. And I had to have it for myself to start reading to my little ones when they come.
Do you have a favorite children's book when you were a child?
