I loved books and reading as a young girl. . .

I remember this book quite well.  I absolutely loved it in sixth grade.  All of the girls at Sunset Elementary stood in line waiting to check it out as soon as it was turned in.  I have learned that it is a much sought after book.  One is listed on ebay for $1,000.  It seems that a lot of girls from the later 1950's early 1960's loved it as well.  Do you remember a favorite book from your growing up days?
I also loved "Charlotte's Web", "The Boxcar Children" and "Pippi Longstocking"!
I found these vintage images of friends.  My sister is my very best friend.  Sisters are like that I think.
I appreciate your friendship, dear journaling friends.  I am fortunate to have met you here at "Bunny Cottage".
"A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been,  accepts what you have become,
and still, gently allows you to grow".~William Shakespeare
