Tattoo Tuesday-Children’s Books

My brain nearly jumped out of my head with excitement as I explored the beautiful bounty of literary skin art on Contrariwise.org (and a few other sites).  Out of all of my many obsession literature is by far the one dearest to me.  It tickles my soul to see so many people who felt a such a deep connection with an author, novel, character, quote, etc. and were inspired to put it on their body.  This weeks theme I’ve decided to do a tribute to Children’s Books and authors.

My earliest and fondest memories of literature was Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughtersbecause that was the first time I read about princesses who looked like me.  I can’t forget about our family’s Bible sized book of Brothers Grimm: Fairy Tales; the table of contents was sprinkled with check marks to signify which stories we read (some stories had a few check marks!).

There are a so many wonderful Children’s Books I couldn’t possibly include them all (that could be its own blog!) but don’t worry Tattoo Tuesday will happen as long as Tuesdays and this blog exists, but most importantly as long as I don’t forget!  If you comment (and answer the question below) I’ll make sure to try to include your favorite book the next go ’round.

Reminisce with me in the comment section:  Which is/are your favorite children’s book(s) and why?

If you are interested in having me feature your geeky tattoo on a future Tattoo Tuesday feel free to email me at girlgonegeekblog[at]gmail.com.
