Not that I have a lot of free time, but when I do it is neat to check out articles about popular things from the year I was born. While on MSN today, this article was one of those on their homepage: “The Most Popular Children’s Book The Year You Were Born.” It starts with 1950 and goes through last year. What a joy going remembering some of the books from my childhood. I also learned that Corduroy by Don Freeman was the most popular book in 1968–the year I was born.
Enjoy traveling through this history of children’s books at MSN.
