#StoryBookSunday : so this was one of my favorites as a child. I used to write all sorts of “clues” about strangers and do the thing where you make up stories about what people might be up to. I think it‘s helped me become more inquisitive and observant as an adult

jb72 That‘s cool 😎 2mo
VioletBramble I did that too - “playing town“. This was the first book that I read that I LOVED. Still in my top 10 favorites list nearly 50 years later.

ElizaMarie @VioletBramble I think I need to do a reread of this one :) 2mo
AnansiGirl I never read Harriet the Spy as a kid. Adding to my tbr anyways. 😁 2mo
ElizaMarie @AnansiGirl a part of me wants to start a nostalgia type book club :) 2mo

Unpopular opinion on one of the must reads for children. My school didn‘t have many books we HAD to read. Shakespeare has always been a big must in schools though. And I just don‘t get it! Firstly plays are terrible things to read, and second Romeo and Juliet is just such a bad love story! Don‘t get me wrong, Shakespeare is iconic. I would just rather watch them than read them.

8little_paws 100% agree about reading Shakespeare in high school. What was the point!? To teach kids adults only read dusty old classics? 2mo
ElizaMarie Haha!!! I totally agree with you!!! But I do love this movie :) (edited) 2mo
Megabooks I took some summer enrichment in Shakespeare in high school, but we had a passionate teacher who understood the text, was good at explaining it, and we acted them out. Without that level of teaching, I agree that it‘s pretty damn pointless in the average high school situation. 2mo

Sace Even with a local Shakespeare theater I think it's pointless to teach him because our district makes it so hard to take a field trip none of the teachers take advantage of it 2mo
BethM I 100% agree with you. 2mo
jb72 I really did not like Romeo & Juliet. The whole thing is just ridiculous reading in my opinion. 2mo
Laura317 I just liked the comedies. 2mo
AkashaVampie i agree with u and @ElizaMarie.... i love this movie. Leo is one of my favs!!! 2mo

#StoryBookSunday - so.. I know super unpopular opinion here but... I mean it was okay. I kinda see how it is taught in schools but I think there are other books out there that would be more entertaining for the youth ...

LoverOfLearning I have my school copy sitting on my shelf. It's full of my notes and underlinings. This book is my next to read because I want to rediscover why it was so important for youth to study. I hope I still enjoy it. 😂😬 2mo
jb72 I am actually rereading the book today for bookclub tomorrow. It‘s a definite pick for me. 2mo
ElizaMarie @LoverOfLearning I mean I can get why it was read (actually I didn‘t have to read it in school) but I just only somewhat enjoyed it. I hear of people just loving this one. 2mo

ElizaMarie @jb72 ha! Proves my opinion is super unpopular! Did you read the Watchman sequel? (I think it‘s called something like that) .. 2mo
LoverOfLearning @ElizaMarie Hmm. Yeah it's been years for me. I have most of my old books sitting on my shelf with notes; The Odessy, Of Mice and Men, and a few more. 2mo
jb72 @ElizaMarie No I did not. I‘ve heard it‘s not very good so I skipped it. 2mo

Sundays is going to be a little hard for me. I never really read when I was younger. I had a problem when it came to reading.... so I didn't like it. I'm trying to think back and all I can think of is this book, reading it in class with the teacher.

jlabombard10315 I never read this as a kid, but I remembered my baby brother loving it! Fast forward to about 28 years later. I now have a toddler who reminds me so much of my brother as a kid that we picked this up and enjoyed the whole story at 36 and 2. 😊💙 3mo

Milly Molly Mandy used to be one of my favourite childhood books. It used to drive my mum mad to read it to me though!

ElizaMarie Ooo Never even heard of this one! 3mo
thegirlwiththelibrarybag Yessss! I had some on cassette and I would always get scared in one story when they climb over a fence that has a ‘trespassers will be shot‘ sign on it to pick blackberries 😂 I‘ve always been a bit taken with fried onion and bread for supper too - sounds delicious! 3mo
jb72 It sounds cute! 3mo

jb72 I‘ll have to look this one up to read. I love when you find books you want to share the rest of your life. 3mo
ElizaMarie @jb72 it is super super cute! I hope you like it :) But it has to be the old Grover one and not the one with Elmo. Grover for life! Team Grover :) 3mo
jb72 @ElizaMarie I‘m more team Cookie Monster. LOL 🍪 cookies are my life. I can totally relate to him. One time I made sure to eat every single Oreo before my ex got home from work. I made myself sick but it was worth it. YOLO 3mo
ElizaMarie @jb74 haha okay I can respect Team Cookie Monster (yesterday I had a whole sleeve of chewy chips ahoy) 3mo
