    Books Are Essential For Children

    It is also important that children to know that books are useful source for information. We can live in a world where the similarity of electronic computers and mobile phones, computers, portable tools have become a source of entertainment source people, but they still need to read books.

    Couldn't agree more
    I haven't failed, i've merely found 10,000 reasons why it didn't work

    I remember having Trixie Beldon & Nancy Drew books when we were little. I don't remember the big ones you hear of now - that were favorites when people were young. COMIC books were big in our house. My favorite book that I can remember was a LIFE: The Sea. (early 70's) It's where my love for sharks started. I can still quote the story of the shark attack off San Fran in 1959. (boy my parents must have been proud -eh?)

    Nancy Drew & Hardy Boys were always favorites of mine. Along with Little House on the Prairie.

    I was a David Cassidy girl until I got into the Bay City Rollers mid 70s. I also read Tiger Beat and some other magazines of that ilk. Not all of the bands were known here in Australia so it was all exciting and confusing to me. Archie comics were a favourite too.

    I had posters all over my walls growing up...of animals & New Kids on the Block. I'm still an animal lover, but what the heck was I thinking with NKOTB!?!

    what a confession. Mine was KISS. (this after the Shaun Cassidy thing) Can you imagine? One of my older sisters used to bring her friends into my room just to show them the posters, like 100+ I can't believe my parents allowed it. It was tasteful … 8X10 around the top like a border ha-ha! then the really big ones … you couldn't even see the wallpaper.

    Let's not think of the scrapbooks with everything we could find in the newspapers etc and the clothing we bought.

    In high school the big thing was Levi's with the white patch on the butt & penny loafers . Aigner was the most expensive thing we'd heard of
