Loving to read Memory #2

So my first loving to read moment involved a girl, a bicycle and a faithful pup.

Memory #2 has the same girl (a number of years on), a drowsy afternoon lecture room at Teacher’s College and a twinkly-eyed lecturer. Jen Willson stood in front of us with a small book in her hands and a secret in her eyes. And then with the greatest of delight she opened up….The Jolly Postman (Janet and Allan Ahlberg), and I was hooked. Up until that moment my experience of books had been limited to what our local library carried. We never had children’s books at home and the thought that books could be an adventure like this complete with hidden secrets and little letters and pretend stamps and …oh my goodness. I raced out and bought a copy (and now am the proud owner of all of their ‘postman’ books.)

Every year that I taught young children, I couldn’t wait for just the right time to show them the magic inside of my ‘Jolly Postman‘ books. And my own young girls were treated to them when they were so little that they weren’t even allowed to touch the books. Now they are a little older and on certain occasions take the books off of my shelf and bury themselves inside them.

PS Blogging – didn’t seem to get the tagging right, will try again. Today I’ve tried to attach an image…see anything???

Ready, steady, blog!

Writers are so often told to “just show up at the page”, well here I am!
I don’t remember learning to read but I clearly remember loving to read. Many of these moments are spot-lighted in my memory.
1) Me+bicycle+loyal dog companion would make our way to the library at the bottom of our road (lucky me!). There Cindy-dog would obediently sit with her nose only poking around the glass doors at the entrance. I would make a beeline through the Dewey system to end up at the ‘B’ for Blyton shelf. Here I would devour the Famous Five books and later all of the Secret Sevens. Of course eventually Nancy Drew rounded out that lot.
And at home, a precious collection of the ‘…..of adventure’ books were lined up on the book case above my pillow. From where the adventures surely seeped into my dreams.

PS Getting my blog driving license as we speak…See the big red L on the back of my vehicle? Okay, today’s lesson has been ‘to tag or not to tag’. Let’s see how that works out.
