Treasuring the Classics

Courtesy of Chayyei Sarah borrowed Treasure Island and reading it on the bus.

Was a book I always wanted to read but had never gotten around to it. It didn't disappoint and is a superb read.

Interesting to see how much of an influence the book is and how many of the concepts in it have been passed down the line and recycled by other people.

Of course the stereotypic notion of a pirate borrows heavily on the persona of Long John Silver.

Once Yakira gets of age the idea will be to read her all the classics such as Peter Pan, Robinson Crusoe, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Alice in Wonderland, the Wind in the Willows, etc.

She will probably want the Chick-Lit as well such as Anne of Green Gables, Nancy Drew, the Little Miss books, Baby-Sitters Club and of course Dora.
