  9. First Loves: Bambi

    The book that made me fall in love with reading was not a book I read myself. After the death of my father when I was barely six, and after a move to a new city, my mother decided to try a new tradition of gathering all three of her children together in the evening and reading to them. I’m sure it was a way to assuage her own grief while spending some quality time with three bewildered young children. The first book she chose to read was Bambi by Felix Salten.

    I remember being snuggled into my pajamas, with twilight closing in, listening to the sometimes funny, sometimes harrowing story of the young fawn read in my beloved mother’s calm and reassuring voice. It was magical and I was transported. I remember feeling a real sense of loss when the book ended. Wanting to recreate that feeling of finding other worlds made me pick up a book for myself, and I have never stopped reading. – Cathy K.

    "I spend my time doing other people’s stuff. I don’t have time to do my own stuff. And if I have the time, I don’t have the energy."
    "So what would you do if you had the time?"
    "I’ve always wanted to make a children’s book."
    "What would it be about?"
    "It’d be about this boy who’s waiting on a train to come into the station, and he announces to everybody that when the train comes, it’s going to be on the ceiling. And then the train does come in on the ceiling. And he’s got to figure out how to get it down."

    That book sounds really good.
