  1. Thank you Jean, for posting “International Children’s Book Day 2019”, I happen to love Hans Christian Anderson’s fairy tales, but I didn’t know it was written in 1837. I did fall in love with “The Little Mermaid,” as many or most young girls did. I still love that book. My mother would take us to the town library every weekend.
