Feature & Follow is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

Q: What were some of your favorite picture books as a kid? If you have kids, what are your favorites to read to them?
When I was a child, I didn't enjoy reading at all. I thought it was the most boring activity to do in the entire world! Therefore, my list is extremely limited.  

This book was everything I wanted my school to be like... wait, never mind! If I remember correctly, these kids were turned into apples by evil teachers!

Come on, who DIDN'T read Junie B. Jones as a kid?!  

This was probably my favorite book as a child, which is not a good thing seeing as how twisted and abnormal it is.

Hehe this probably doesn't even count, but Pokemon was my all-time favorite show when I was younger. I still have my collection of pokemon cards to this day. I also still have all the books I collected pertaining to this show!

This is a classic in my opinion. It's an interesting tale of how a man was bullied my monkeys :)

That's all from me, folks. Leave a link to your post in the comments section and I'll stop by with a follow back!

  13. Ah! "Wayside School!" I forget if it was in the first one or if it was in "Wayside School Gets A Little Stranger," but there was this one story that really got to me! It was about a teacher who has a secret ear on the top of her head, and she could HEAR the students' thoughts! I became super self-conscious - like some crazy conspiracy theory person, but I was only about seven years old, haha. I would be sitting on the bus and someone would sit next to me, and I'd think a mean thought like "I hope she doesn't talk to me. She's so annoying" and then I'd start censoring what I was thinking in case someone could hear me - or in case the person I was thinking mean thoughts about could hear me, because I didn't want to make them feel bad. I'd like to think I wasn't crazy and that I just had a big imagination.
    ...Yeah, we'll go with that. ;)
