When I was Five

Well this title could not be more appropriate for us this year, it's called When I was Five by Arthur Howard. Yep, my little boy had his Birthday recently and went from 5 to 6. We had actually read this book last year as well preparing him for upcoming changes of growing up and I looked forward to getting from the library again this year to share with him. Join along as a young boy shares his favorite things from when he was five and what they are now that he's six. It's a fun collection of things that are important to little boys from what he wants to be when he grows up, favorite dinosaur and favorite secret hiding place. But of course there are somethings that never change which is very endearing! It has been fun reading with my little guy and talking to him about his favorite things as he continues to grow each year. I think this will be a Birthday favorite read for years to come.


  1. Sounds like a very sweet read! And a very happy birthday to the recently turned 6 A! Hugs to you all!

  2. Yes, that does sound like a fun little book. Congratulations to your 6 year old! :-)

  3. Oh my goodness, this book is perfect for me too. My daughter turns 6 tomorrow. I'm going to go buy this one right now :)
