A Very Young Dancer
Is there a book that brings back a rush of childhood memories for you?
For me, it's the book A Very Young Dancer. I can distinctly remember the spot it occupied on the shelf of my elementary school library. I imagine I checked it out no less than 50 times during my tenure at Hayes Elementary. My aunt owned a dance studio, so of course I was there for three classes a week, and I even got to have a part in a local production of The Nutcracker, albeit the small part of a soldier. So I thought Stephanie was pretty cool.
I found an old copy on ebay to purchase and got it out last night to read to WC. She was enthralled and several times I had to say "Just wait... let's see what they say on the next page....." since she asked a million questions.
So I'm reaching back in my memory and trying to remember books that we girls of the 70s might have read and hope to build a small "vintage" library for WC and I to share. Any ideas for me?
