What were some of your favorite picture books as a kid? If you have kids, what are your favorites to read to them?
Well, one would be The Ugly Duckling. I hail from an urban poor community and the only chance I got then to see colored picture books was through a Day Care Center where a lone teacher teaches a horde of noisy little children.The only time we behave was when the teacher hush us for a story. The story-telling time was my favorite part of the day then. It's because of the images I saw from the picture books that I decided to enhance my drawing skills.
The other ones would be Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz.
I don't have kids yet. But if ever I'm going to read them stories, picture books or not, I might impart to them Dr. Seuss and if possible, Roald Dahl if he got any of his books in pictures. Honestly, I haven't read any Dr. Seuss books yet but I heard a lot about them. They are full of lessons to learn that many of my friends quote from them through text messages. I don't plan to read any Dr. Seuss book soon but I consider reading them the first time along with my future kids. For sure, I'd also read to them Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz.
