I finally figured out why I love thrift stores and yard sales. It all started in the second grade when our teacher began reading The Boxcar Children series to the class. Oh how it set my imagination free. I was enthralled with the way these children were so resourceful, the garbage dump yielded many useful items for the children. OK, so let me clarify here, I DO NOT SCROUNGE THE GARBAGE DUMP LOOKING FOR THINGS, however I am always on the lookout for curbside freebies and treasures others consider no longer useful.
So, the question is:
What children's books made an impression on you as a child that has influenced you as an adult?
