I love children's books.  I always have.  I still read them and feel lucky that I sometimes get to review them. It is so wonderful to be able to share my childhood favorites with my little boy.  My husband was not read to very much as a child so he is finally catching up on the kidlit canon that he missed.

I just saw this wonderful quotation by C.S. Lewis today:

"When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so.  Now that I am fifty I read them openly.  When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up."
