    Q: Activity! Who do you want to be? If you could choose any character from a book. What do you think that character looks like and what do you have in common?

    My Answer:  Cherry Ames from the Cherry Ames Nursing stories by Helen Wells.   Cherry was absolutely beautiful in my minds eye, which I am not.  She was into all kinds of nursing, had all kinds of romances with the various stories and she had character which was consistent for the time her stories were set in.   She was patriotic and loyal, faithful to a fault, kind and giving.   I do believe she shaped my character to a large degree as she was a perfect role model.

     How do you see yourself as a book character?   Let's talk.

It's a 1940-1950 series I believe....could even be older, but I loved her dearly as a child.
