Corner View is a weekly appointment - each Wednesday - created by Jane (Spain) and curated by Francesca (Italy), where bloggers from all corners of the world share their view on a pre-arranged theme. The theme this week is "one book" and comes from Ibabe (Basque Country).
My first thought when I saw this week's theme was... "only one?" You see, I have stacks of books everywhere and multiple bookcases that are groaning under the weight of their contents. So picking just one was going to be a challenge.
It suddenly struck me though, that there are a small handful of books that I've carried with me since I was a young girl and one of my very favorites among them is the Golden Book called Bird Nests. It's not that the writing is particularly wonderful but I've always really loved the illustrations. As an adult, whenever I pluck it off the shelf I get a wave of nostalgia, remembering how excited I was to receive this gift as a 6 year old with the beginnings of a love for the beautiful creatures.
