The Express Yourself Weekly Meme is hosted by Jackie @ Bouquet of Books and Dani @ Entertaining Interests.
The question this week is: What is your favorite childhood movie and/or book?
As a kid, I watched movies with my dad all the time, and he exposed me to the movies he grew up with. That's why one of my favorite childhood movies was The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951). Another favorite movie of mine as a child was Jurassic Park, which I saw in the theater when I was 7. I was so impressed by it I couldn't look away from the screen!
A favorite childhood book of mine was a YA novel called Monster Makers Inc. by Laurence Yep. I'd never heard of it before I got it used from a library book sale. Yet it appealed to me because it was sci-fi with plenty of adventure. It also had all kinds of genetically engineered creatures, including a miniature Godzilla. Who could resist a mini Godzilla? Seriously?
Anyway, those are some of my childhood favorites. How about yours?
