Question

What were some of the most memorable books you read as a child? What made them memorable?

Answer

Ohhh I love this question! 😍 I used to read a lot when I was little. Every year my mom would take me to the Book Fair and I would get so many books 📚 I distinctively remember reading “The Little Prince” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. I was too little to fully comprehend the importance and meaning of the story. However, deep down I always knew it was special. It is one of those books that you have to read multiple times in your life because there will always be something that you can learn from it.

“The Little Mermaid” by Hans Christian Andersen is one of my favorite books of all times. I remember reading it multiple times before bed and falling continuously in love with the story 🥰 Even though the original story is darker than the Disney version, I still enjoyed it. I felt mesmerized by the tale and for a couple years I really wanted to be a mermaid ❤️ I think it was the fact that it was such a unique story and I hadn’t read anything like it, that made it memorable. Even today, as an adult, I love everything related to “The Little Mermaid” and I think is because in some way or another it makes me feel connected to my childhood 🧜🏻‍♀️.
