where reality and fantasy meet

Photo Challenge Day 64- A picture of your favorite childhood book.

In my case, this book is definitely not other than "Cuentos de mi Tia Panchita" (original name in spanish), that translated to English would be "Stories from my Aunt Panchita".



I just simply love this book, it's all about fairy tales, stories from the woods, witches, magical places and situations, all very much based in Costa Rican folklore and legends, but all the stories have a moral that is definitely the best part of it.

Oh my how I used to love this book and since I started thinking about it for this challenge, now I really want to read it all over again, so if I go back home this year, I will buy it again, can't wait!

In another note, my weekend was great, as you probably read (or if not, you can still visit my Sat. post and read all about it), on Friday we went to The Wailers concert and it was fabulous. Saturday and Sunday were very low key, on Sat. I went to the bookstore and bought a book with a gift certificate that I had from my birthday!

Well, today is back to work, I hope all Mom's around the globe had a wonderful day yesterday!!!

Have a wonderful Monday and rest of the week...

Your book looks and sounds special - I´ve always loved that kind of children books and still do. I often read a fairy tale for my youngest daugher before bedtime, and we both dive into the fantasy world and thoroughly enjoy it. Maybe that´s where we all come from; A place between fantasy and reality? :-)

Oh aren't childhood books powerful?! The impact they make. Mine was about a dog that ran away from home because the owner called it stupid. It made such an impression on me (it did have a happy ending!). Have a great week!

I remember a big orange copy of Grimms Fairy Tales at my Grandparents. I used to love that book when we went for a visit!
