Lost and found

I was a bookworm from an early age and have fond memories of my favourite reads. It seems I'm not alone either, as I was talking to some people on Twitter last week and before long, my feed had exploded as more and more people joined in the conversation, feeling nostalgic for the books of their childhoods.

It became really clear to me that books play such an important part in our development and no matter how much we read as adults, we always remember our best books and fell warm and fuzzy when we recollect the stories that inspired our young minds.

When I was young, I had this book about woodland animals and the seasons of the year. It had a brown cover and I remember being fascinated by the detail of the drawings inside. As time passed, the book became lost - probably sent off to the charity shop along with other bits and pieces my parents could no longer store.

For years now, I've tried to recall the name of it, only remmebering that is was a story about different animals through the seasons of the year. It sounds like a good Google search would come up with something but hubs and I have searched to no avail. I have a few older children's books now in Ethan's library as a result of the search but the book of my childhood remained out of reach.

Until now. Hubs never gave up the search, and had posted the details on one of the forums he regularly visits. Months later, someone made the suggestion of the Fern Hollow series. And one look at the cover and I knew it was true.

We had found my book.
