Old Nostalgias of Childhood — 24in48

I imagine that the oldest book I have from my childhood—though it is currently boxed up in storage because I live in an apartment and move a fair amount—are the pile of Nancy Drew books I inherited from my mother. She’d read them when she was young and, since I’ve always been in love with…

Edison: The Mystery of the Missing Mouse Treasure [Torben Kuhlmann]

Edison: The Mystery of the Missing Mouse Treasure by Torben Kuhlmann is a short and sweet children’s chapter book that utterly captured my heart.
