Today in my vast collection of books I found an interesting 1969 edition by the Weekly Reader Children’s Book Club.
“We Were Tired Of Living In A House” was written by Liesel Moak Skorpen, a German born author, and illustrated by Doris Burn who always wanted to live on an island. I think the illustrations made by Doris Burn are great. Even though I never created a home in a tree or lived in a cave when I was a child, I did spend many hours outdoors creating a magical childhood filled with play and imagination. And, afterwards I always returned to the best place to live and that was “in a house”.
