National Tell A Story Day #doodlewashaday

April 27th  Today is National Tell A Story Day.  I could have chosen several other options among them Prime Rib Day.  Because I am not much of a story teller I thought I would bring your attention to reading a story instead.  If you read a book aloud doesn’t it then become telling a story?  I think so.   Therefore I have doodlewashed  the possible jacket cover for a book that was a particular childhood favourite of mine, “The Secret Garden”.  Which knowing my parents was read aloud to me as a child, ergo telling a story.  I later read “The Secret Garden” several more times myself.  Anyway I do hope you get to tell a story today.  Tell one to a child.  Believe me they will remember it.

    Isn’t reading aloud the best? I miss having children around to read to! I think I read this one to my oldest, and I know she re-read it herself as well. Good choice! (K)

    I love your book cover, Susan! 💕😄💐 Looks like we were both thinking gardens today! 🌺🌸 Enjoyed hearing about your childhood memories on this book. My favorite was Charlotte’s Web as a child which my mom read to me. 😊
