Armchair Bea: Day 5 (Keeping It Real and Picture Books to Young Adult)


Keeping It Real, Fresh, and Fun:

I have at least one new post every day! I haven't missed a day since I started blogging, despite months of painstaking schoolwork and stress and AP exams and graduation. I also post a lot of giveaways, because everyone likes a giveaway!

And as you can see on my right-hand sidebar, I have plenty of those.

I change my background every now and then as well. I'm getting ready to change my whole layout. We'll see how that goes!


From Picture Books To Young Adult:

I don't read a lot of little children's literature anymore. I love The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.


And of course, Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.


As for Young Adult novels... well, this blog is mostly filled with YA-related posts and reviews. Don't make me pick my favorites :D

  1. When the movie Where The Wild Things Are came out, everyone I knew was absolutely shocked that I had never read the book! I guess it just wasn't one of the ones my parents had read to me when I was little or one I ever did pick up.

    1. OMG you MUST! I know what you mean though - I feel clueless when people talk about things like fairy tales.

  3. I just went to an Eric Carle art show. His books are some of our favorites. I never read Where the Wild Things Are until I checked it out from the library for my 4 yr old. Now it's one of my favorite books, not just for him either.

  4. My kids love The Very Hungry Caterpillar as do I. Even now as they head into their teen years, we still enjoy reading it together.
