These are the books my youngest would pack inside the pocket of her bag. Mostly consisting of Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, Choose Your Own Adventure books, and other random animal books. She loves cats, dogs, and anything cute and fluffy. Sadly afterwards, she realized she forgot to stick the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid in there, but the journey has already begun! She wasn't too disappointed about it though, she has plenty to occupy herself on our made up journey.
These are my oldest daughter's choices. She kind of dips her toes into just about everything, and seems to adore just about every book she reads. She is also a fellow classic lover, so she has a few in there, her most favorite being The Wizard of Oz. She had quite a hard time skimming down all her choices to fit into the pocket. I think she would have rather had her necessities in the smaller pocket and her books in the rest!
These are the books I chose, which I am not entirely sure I would really pick. I don't think my mind was in a great spot to be choosing for something so official. Plus, my large Garden Primer book takes up o much space. I also announced that if we were planning a journey, I would be sure to first get a copy of the right translation that I like for The Theban Plays.
So, if you had those dimensions of a magical pocket, what books would you stuff inside for the journey of your life?
