Last week I stumbled upon The Fire Cat- which was one of my favorite books as a kid. It’s amazing how familiar the pages and illustrations instantly were- think of your best loved books when you were little, I’m sure you read them over and over storing pieces in the back caverns of your mind. I pretend in one of these lifetimes I’ll find time to finish writing my own children’s book (about an octopus heroine modeled in the spirit of Bessie Coleman). In the meantime whenever I chance upon unique vintage kid’s books I scoop them up and add them to my growing inspiration library. And I love that when my niece visits she and I get to enjoy some dear old book friends together.
