Some of her books were made into movies and TV shows, and of those my absolute favorite was Pippi Langstrumpf. I loved her free spirit!! So, in a sentimental moment, I tried to find the German theme song of the TV show (I still know it by heart!) and found it on Youtube. If you want to hear it (and see some fun scenes from the movies and shows), click here.
Three other TV shows I watched once in a while and really enjoyed when I was growing up were The Waltons, Little House on the Prairie, and Daktari, all of course in German! I didn't read any of the American children's classics, like Little House on the Prairie or Anne of Green Gables, until I had moved to the US as an adult. I still love reading children's and young adult books.
What were some of your favorite books growing up? Or TV shows? Or movies?
New painting coming soon. And the award as well. Sending you warm wishes from a very cold Savannah!!
