by Isadora Teich


Many of us grew up reading and listening to our family members telling us stories of fictional and magical characters, talking animals and enchanted objects in both mythical and real worlds. They took many of us to wonderful places and fueled our imagination, making us the people we are today. 

When you think about children's books, there are certain authors who come to mind, some of whom include but are not limited to E.B. White, Lewis Carroll, Dr. Seuss, Beatrix Potter, A. A. Milne and J. K. Rowling. Some of the most popular books that some of us have owned include Goodnight Moon, Where the Wild Things Are, Green Eggs and Ham, A Wrinkle in Time, Charlotte's Web, The Snowy Day and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Many of these books were also the inspiration for some of the popular television series and movies that have been released.
