Probably, you remember some of the things you did as a child, the games you played with friends or what you did alone indoors when it was raining. Maybe, you even remember how much thicker the frosting on cupcakes seemed to be. But can you remember how it felt to be a child?

I don't mean to imply these are light, care-free books that will carry you down memory lane.
