Jean Fritz Quotes

When I lived in China, there were no libraries. My mother bought books for me, and they were mostly the classics. I read Peter Pan, The Secret Garden, the Rosemary books, and Kiplings Just So Stories was one of my favorites. No, I didnt read historical fiction. It didnt exist where I was growing up in China.
