Once upon a time...

Some books that we had read in our childhood could leave a strong impression that follows us throughout our lives. My inspiration for today's article is my favorite collection of six children's books, that had a great impact on developing my personality.

This edition is "Once upon a time in the meadow" written by Rose Selarose. It is a story about six girls, who live by themselves without any grownups and enjoy their lovely days and adventures. They spend days playing together and doing useful and nice things as cooking, gardening, painting... They take care of each other. Each of them has their own recognizable characteristics and their own interests, talents and hobbies. Each of them has their own personality. I learned a lot from each of them. They represent good values and have a nice impact on the raising children, especially girls.

I found those books few days ago when I was arranging my home library and I was very happy when I saw them. They reminded me of beautiful childhood days.

When I was a child, sometimes I imagined living like those girls. There was a book for each of them. Their original names are Sally, Betty, Claire, Sarah, Diane and Anne. I have books that are transleted into Serbian and their names are different. Their Serbian names are Tanja, Vesna, Maja, Sanja, Jasna and Ana.

Sally (Tanja)

She was an artist. I learned from her that it is great when someone is creative. She painted very nice and I remember that she inspired me to paint.

Even today when I have time, I like to paint something. It is relaxing moment for me.

Betty (Vesna)

She was the youngest and she had an interesting adventure. When she got lost in the forest, girls were worried about her and I realized that it is very nice when we take care for each other. When the girls found her, they were very happy. I remember that I was delighted by nature in that book. Girls picked wild strawberries.

Even today, when I go to some vacation in the mountain, I like to pick forest fruit.

In that book I also started to develop love of animals. Girls took care of the animals.

Claire (Maja)

She was hard working girl. She loved cooking and she inspired me to start cooking and preparing cakes and pastries when I was a kid. She inspired me to prepare food for dear people and to experience happiness in gathering around the table.

Today I like cooking very much. My first recipe was her recipe for one beautiful simple cake. Here it is...

Sarah (Sanja)

She taught me to love plants and gardening. I really started to love flowers after reading that book. Flowers always make me calm and happy.

In the book about her there are useful and taughtful advices about planting.

Diane (Jasna)

She was brave and able to do everything to help someone. She was always on my mind when I were in situation where someone needed help. She was very friendly. This picture speaks a lot about their lovely friendly time...

Anne (Ana)

She was my favorite because she was the most beautiful. I dreamed of being like her. She taught me to take care of my hair and my appearance.

And also there were some good advices how to use nature for our beauty. For example, to eat carrots if we want to have nice skin...

When I was a child I decided that my daughter's name will be Ana if I had daughter. Today I have daughter and her name is Ana. 😊

Thank you very much for reading. Do you have some favorite childhood book?

Article and photos are original and they belong to me.

Best regards to all readers and writers.

I was away from the platform for a while. That's why I skipped this article. I just read it and it's a really nice article. I liked Betty the most. When we were children, we used to spend the summer months in our village. We used to go from town to village during the school holidays. When I was a kid, my sister and I picked a lot of forest strawberries. It was very enjoyable. I also remember climbing trees and eating black mulberries. Moreover, the mulberry tree I was climbing was as high as a 10-storey apartment building, and I would climb as high as I could. Back then, I could climb like a monkey. I still remember how my mother was worried that I would fall. But the tastiest fruits were at the top. :)

What beautiful memories you have of your childhood, you made me remember that my mother in an extreme effort to keep me busy, I was a child with ADHD (I still am, LOL) she gave me "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" by Mark Twain, I did not know my poor mother the problems that would bring her hahaha because I read it like 5 times and wanted to replicate everything I learned from the book.

When I was a child I found a book with different fairy tail stories. I read all of them some of the stories are Cinderella, Snow White, Three little pigs, Jack Nad the beanstalk and many more. I really love reading before however as the days go by and I get old, I prefer to watch than read.

Somehow I was never much into reading fiction. Even those books that were part of the school curriculum were just torture. I admire people who are into books and manage to imagine all the characters and their stories. Maybe I'm a bit too technical a person :D
