What was your favorite book growing up? Why?
Lois Lenski’s Indian Captive, which was a narrative version of Mary Jemison’s real capture and life with Native Americans. I loved any book with kids living VERY different lives in very different worlds than mine. I also loved The Ear, the Eye, and the Arm, Mandy, anything by Roald Dahl — especially Matilda, Zlata’s Diary, and this one book I cannot remember the name of but it involved going back in time (through… the early internet?) to Ancient Egypt and solving a series of mysteries in order to get home before mom & dad noticed that the video game ate the kid. It sounds stupid. I loved it.
I INHALED books. I am so sure there are more. What books were your favorites as a kid?
