Everything I Need to Know I Learned from a Children's Book by Anita Silvey
This week is Children's Book Week. It is a great time to remind us that children's books are more than just for children but can be for all. I chose today's book not because it is for children per se but because it proves that most children's books have something to teach all of us~
Everything I Need to Know I Learned from a Children's Book by Anita Silvey is a great book to have around the house. Anita Silvey, former editor and publisher, has gathered a prestigious group of people to explain what they have learned from specific children's books. I met Ms Silvey many years ago and found her fascinating and passionate about children's books. Her passion shines through in this book too. This book would make a great family gift or graduation gift....
