Week 2 of the Filipino Friday meme is here!
What were your favorite books as a kid or while you were growing up? Do you still read children’s books? If you could give your younger self a book to read, what would it be?

I remember our library back in grade school where we had these small, pocket-sized books on the classics. I loved the illustrations accompanying the story. Most of the time, I'd just look at the images and read the captions instead of the story itself. :P

And who could forget the Ladybug books? I loved reading fairy tales and the illustrations are just lovely.
But if I were to give a book to my younger self, it would be these:

I loved watching the cartoon series of Where's Wally/Waldo, and I think I'd enjoy this book just for the pleasure of looking for the elusive Wally.
I think my younger self would be so amazed by the storytelling in the Harry Potter series and well, I really don't think there's much to say about this awesome book. I know I would absolutely love to read this and would most likely to get me to read at a younger age.
Looking back, I'd say I was a more visual reader when I was a kid. I guess that's why it took me a long time to finish that Nancy Drew book as it was just pure text, but nonetheless, I enjoyed remembering my childhood reads. I didn't even think to remember them until Kat mentioned Enid Blyton! :D
