As we round the bend to a New Year, we asked some of our Children’s Room readers and staff:
What’s the BEST book you read in 2009?
Here’s a sampling of the answers:
GM, age 2: The Nutshell Library by Maurice Sendak . She loves little, little, little books. (Parent coached!)
PM and SA, age 4: All the Madeleine books by Ludwig Bemelmans because all the girls stand in a line, wear the same dresses, and do the same thing all together. And these books rhyme! “And we remember the rhymes!”
CA, age 5: “Dr Seuss books. I love them all because they’re silly and filled with very, very funny words!”
MRN, age 8: “Haunted Castle on Hallows Eve (The Magic Tree House; #30) by Mary Pope Osborne. I love mysteries, and this is a great mystery story. I recommend it to all kids.”
