When I was a child, my favorite book was… because….
This is actually a very hard question for me. When I was a child, I found it difficult to read especially aloud in class. This was partially because I did find it hard to pick up reading, partially because I was a shy child and partially because the things they made us read in school were so damned awful.
I would have to say, my favourite book as a child was "The Tale of Peter Rabbit" by Beatrix Potter.
I had a set of Beatrix Potter books and I liked them all. The text was simple and poetic, but the illustrations were a marvel to me. These books sparked my interest in art. I was determined to one day paint as well as Beatrix. Sadly, I haven't got there yet.
I'm still trying though.
