“Harriet the Spy”


"She found that when she didn’t have a notebook it was hard for her to think.
The thoughts came slowly, as though they had to squeeze through a tiny door to
get to her, whereas when she wrote, they flowed out faster than she could put
them down."

"Harriet the Spy"

    This used to be one of my favorite books when I was in grade school – thanks for reminding me of it!
    (I think I still have a copy of it somewhere in the house…)

  2. Grade 6 memories came flooding back to me with this post. I just realized that this may have been the most formative book in my childhood.

    I read that book a bunch of times when I was in junior high school. Reading/writing/journaling have always been interests of mine, I guess.
