I was an only child and often spent time around adults more than kids. I went to a Catholic school and no one else in my neighborhood did. I had friends from my neighborhood and we were in and out of each other's houses throughout the summer. But during the winter and school year, friends seemed out of reach until I was old enough to take a bus or a bike to meet school friends who were becoming my day to day allies and confidantes.
Since my mom was an elementary school teacher, books were a big part of our household. Most weeks when we went to the grocery store, she would buy me a "Golden" book. So I had a library early on. What I remember most is settling in the corner of the sofa and devouring books over and over. Once I started reading chapter books, I was hooked for life.
If I had to name the book that made the biggest impression, it would be ANNE OF GREEN GABLES. Anne fascinated me as did the series. I wanted to know what would happen next. With that book, I learned about adapting to a new home, kindred spirit friendship and creating bonds to last a lifetime.
