What was your favorite children’s book?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on June 13, 2008
“‘Hop on Pop,’ by Dr. Seuss. My pampa and I used to read it together, and he had a big belly that I would lay on while he read.”
“‘Where the Wild Things Are,’ by Maurice Sendak, because of the pictures, the abstract creatures and the overall positive theme of the story.”
“‘I think it was ‘Johnny Tremaine,’ by Esther Hoskins Forbes. I was really interested in history, always have been, and it was set during the American Revolution.”
“‘Junie B. Jones,’ by Barbara Park and Denise Brunkus. They’re a series of books about a little girl who speaks really funny, and her experiences with school and her friends.”
