I finished my first book for the reading challenge on January 1st in order to get some momentum going. Not surprisingly, it was a short, fun book for children. I’ve always loved children’s literature; I even took a course in college specifically focused on this genre. Good kid’s books are so imaginative and fantastic, and I love that they foster this creativity in readers.
I read Neil Gaiman’s Fortunately, the Milk for this category. This book is a whimsical story about a father, a stegosaurus, aliens, time travel, and, of course, milk. In essence, it’s a story about storytelling, and it is wonderfully complemented by the elaborate illustrations of Skottie Young. I would highly recommend it for adults and children.
