Happy International Children's Book Week, celebrated today through May 16. Children's literature was where it all began for me. A few of my favorites still are:
Time of Wonder by Robert McCloskey
The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss
Morris' Disappearing Bag by Rosemary Wells
Amelia Bedelia by Peggy Parish
Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
and many, many others. To celebrate, consider purchasing children's books at one of my new favorite places to buy books online: Better World Books. They are running a sale all week.
