Sunday Memories: Our Children's Stories



The bookshelf with all the Charles Addams books was in the adult section of the Seward Park Library. On the occasions I went with Florence she'd park me on a little wooden stool used by bigger people to reach higher places, stick a Charles Addams book in my hands, and then drift off to somewhere else.

I would sit there for hours, pouring over every picture, believing the secrets of life were being revealed to me.

Aww..look at your black baby reading his book. Is he still watching for his doggy sweetheart?
Books were the best thing growing up. I would open a book and sink down down into the story. Mom would have to poke me to get my attention. I heard nothing, saw nothing. I was in the story. It was hard to come back.
