My life as The Big Orange Splot.

"Our street is us and we are it.
Our street is where we like to be, and it looks like all our dreams."

When I was just a wee lass this was my favorite book. It is the first book that I remember reading over and over again after I first learned how to sound out words.
The story is all about being an individual in a world full of sameness and how diversity is OK.
I just ordered a copy of the book for a friend's little girl who is getting to be the age where I think she will appreciate it. (You can get it on Amazon for next to nothing)

I guess what I am trying to say is; if you have a child in your life that is just learning to read, or that enjoys books with big bright pictures, this is a great one! I highly recommend it.

Just looking at the cover makes me get a little misty. Where does the time go?

Weird, I don't remember this book at all.

I've posted your new little neck purses!

Really??? Weird. I got it from someone as a gift. It is actually one of the very few things from childhood that I managed to hang on to! My copy is really old and beat up, but I hung on to it! :-)
I used to go over it again and again. I had it memorized.
