Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker Sue Kerr: "What is the very first book (or other material) you remember reading?"

Walt Disney's Story Land. The 1962 edition.

That's not my copy, which I think was passed down to my nephew; I just grabbed those pictures from an Etsy listing. But that's the exact edition I had, and it was in pretty similar condition.

That's my earliest reading memory. That, and a children's Bible, and a collection of Little Golden Books. It was always the greatest day everrrrrr when I'd get to pick out a new Little Golden Book at the grocery store.
