Feature & Follow Friday: First book read

Feature & Follow Friday is hosted by Rachel over at Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. This is a chance to get to know fellow book bloggers and have them meet you. Be sure to pop over and meet this week's featured bloggers!

What is the first book you remember reading?


There are so many books that I remember from my childhood but it took some wiping away the cobwebs of my mind to remember which one might have been the first! I'm pretty sure it's Grug, a series of books by Australian author, Ted Prior. I adored Grug and I have a distinct memory of sitting in my room flipping through those books. I don't own those books anymore but I was so happy to see them republished a few years ago. My niece and nephew own them now and that makes me smile. This question got me all nostalgic for the books I did keep from my childhood, so I went digging for them. I found The Unicorn of Kilimanjaro, which had me believing for so long that unicorns were real, and The Lantern Keeper's Bedtime Book. It's so cute, so I'm off to read it again and reminisce.

Do you remember the first book you read? What was it? Any other Grug lovers out there? I hope you enjoy your weekend! Happy reading.

    1. I'm not sure how well they published outside of Australia? Dr Seuss is great! I'm sure I read a lot as a kid too, but I don't remember much of it. Instead I know more of his work from storytimes in the library I used to work at. They're such fun books. Thanks, Krystianna! :-)

    Thanks for sharing! Hope you come check out my FF post @ A Night's Dream of Books. Happy reading!! : )

    1. Grug is adorable! :-D It's an Australian series, which might be why you've never heard of it.

      Unicorns are my favourite! Though I can't draw, unfortunately. ;-) The author released another book about unicorns that's meant to be fantastic too, so I hope I can find it.

      Thanks so much, Maria.
