Now, as for this week's blog topic: 3 Fondly Remembered Books from My Childhood
1. Uncle Wiggly's Story Book
A series of short stories that were cute and none too frightening. Nurse Jane Fuzzy Wuzzy is still a favorite that my family retells around the dinner table during the holidays.

3. Gnomes by Rein Poortvliet
