    Oh, I wish I still had this book But being able to have it on my goodreads shelves is wonderful I ve recalled the lovely illustrations many times over the years, and never thought to see the cover again My earliest recollection of sighing romantically over a story was when I read this book as small child The pictures were captivating, and I ll never forget slowly and lovingly turning the pages again and again Thank you so much to the kind person who added it to the goodreads site

    Every time I think of my favorite children s book, The Giving Tree arrives firstand then I remember THIS book I must have devoured this book hundreds of times The illustrations were gorgeous Even the paper smelled good I wanted the little blind boy to give ME strawberries I need to ask my parents if they still have this precious volume I m pretty sure the binding was mended with duct tape at some point, so it must still be around.

    In unpacking boxes from my recent move, I found a treasure trove of books from my childhood This is one of them It was a lovely trip down memory lane Everyone uses Goodreads for their own distinct purposes One of my purposes is to attempt to document every book I ve ever read Will I be able to do it Probably not Am I enjoying the attempt Absolutely

    I am adding this title to my read list just as a childhood touchstone This book and Astrid Lindgren s version of The Tomten remain favorites, but A Present for the Princess is much harder to find.
