Childhood favourites

Couldn’t resist this copy of an old childhood favourite I spotted in an Op Shop recently πŸ™‚

I had my mother’s old copy of Pollyanna’s Jewels and read and re-read it many times while growing up and borrowed other volumes in the series from the local library. I think it had a huge effect on me – I’ve often turned to the ‘Glad Game’ when life became a little perplexing πŸ™‚ I still have Mum’s book but packed away in a box at the top of the cupboard until we get some more shelves.

I named my cat Pollyanna, twenty-five years ago. She lived for 15 years despite losing a leg in an accident on her first birthday. Still miss her.

Did you have favourite childhood books that have stayed with you through adult years?
