This book is extremely important to me. It is the first chapter book that I ever read alone, unassisted, of my own volition.
I was six. I remember very vividly reading My First Kitten in a single morning, loving every second of it. I came out of my room proudly for lunch and told my dad that I'd read a chapter book all the way through. He didn't believe me. Or maybe, he did and was just teasing me.
"Without looking at the back, then, tell me what it's about!" he said, with that blue twinkle in his eyes.
And then we ate beefaroni, ravioli, or Lipton's chicken noodle soup - lunch staples in that little house I loved so well. I feel old now, comparatively. And I'm a vegetarian. So is that little 3 year-old girl that would have been sitting beside me. Weird how time works.
Anyways, that got a bit off track. This book is fantastic. It was my FIRST. It helped me build confidence as a reader. It led me to read fantastic books like Into the Land of the Unicorns and The Hobbit in the year or two after.
I love this book.
