Blink Authors: What Is The First Book You Remember Reading As A Child?

In this week’s Back To School series, some of our Blink authors share the first book they remember reading as a child.

What is the first book you remember reading as a child?

Luke Reynolds: A book of scary stories called THE THING AT THE FOOT OF THE BED. I still have my tattered copy of the book!

Evangeline Denmark: My earliest book-related memories are of The Chronicles of Narnia. I used to pretend to be Lucy. I’m still kinda waiting for Mr. Tumnus to show up.

Denise Grover Swank: I learned to read before I went to kindergarten, and I remember reading a book about a girl who went shopping and begged her mother for red shoes instead of black ones.

Carol Lynch Williams: That was a long time ago, so I don’t really remember. Mom was bringing all her teacher-y stuff home. We were always memorizing poems with her and Mom would read her school books to us.

We want to hear from you! Share the first book you remember reading with us on Facebook!
