What Have Children's Books Taught YOU?

In this title, Anita Silvey asks over 100 people from all walks of life "What children's book changed the way you see the world?" the answers are both insightful and funny; inspiring and unexpected.

One of my favorite responses was from Jerry J. Mallett, the founder of the Mazza Museum in Ohio, who remembered The Twenty-One Balloons: "From it I learned that it is never too late to have your life changed by a children's book."

This is a fun and fascinating book for anyone who enjoys reading. Check it out! You won't be disappointed!
