The illustrations compliment the story very well. They are filled with bright colors and humor that matches perfectly with Emily’s writing style of the book.

    My favorite book as a child is Green Eggs and Ham by Dr Seuss.

    Books – the keys to success! My books have always been among my most treasured possessions. I still have nearly all of my faves from childhood – they’re antiques now! When I find someone who has read the Miss Minerva books, or Uncle Wiggly, it makes my day! If all children grew up listening to books being read to them, and then learned to read for themselves, the world would be a much better place. Books are your life’s companions. With them, you are never alone. Without them, well…….you miss out on a world whose size cannot be measured!

    My favorite childhood book was the Cat in the Hat!! I remember thinking how will he get out of the jams he was in!! And you can’t forget the fish and thing one and thing two!

  4. Barbara Nelson says:

    I was a slow reader, so my mother borrowed Dr. Seuss books and I poured through them. But once I was reading chapter books, I’d go to the library and borrow the Raggedy Ann and Andy series by Johnny Gruelle. I also read every Nancy Drew that I could get my hands on. I liked browsing encyclopedias too. I was a weird kid, but as an adult, unbeatable at Trivial Pursuit. (No need to enter me in the contest since I don’t have a little one in my life to share it with right now.)

  5. Brenda Kalafut says:

    My favorite childhood book was Never Tease a Weasel by Jean Soule. I still love it!

  6. Cheryl Causey says:

    The Three Billy Goat’s Gruff has been a long time favorite of mine & it became a favorite of my oldest son as a child. 🙂

  7. Danielle says:

    I loved “Run Away Marie Louise” when I was little. At that particular age (around 5), I was always running away from home when I was mad and trying to move into the tree in our front yard!

  8. Renee says:

    The Snowy Day!!!

  9. Ashley Harrison says:

    My favourite childhood book was Matilda by Roald Dahl. Amazing story.

  10. Kate says:

    My favorite childhood book was “Madeline” by Ludwig Bemelmans. There are so many cute Madeline stories. I even had a little Madeline doll -with a scar on her side from her hospital visit and all! 🙂

  11. Stephanie says:

    My favorite book as a child was any of the Fancy Nancy books

  12. Beth Figlewicz says:

    My favorite books were the Bobsey Twins–they were my mom’s books and she shared her love of reading to me, and it meant so much that they once belonged to my mom. I hope I have passed on my love of reading to my children and grandchildren

  13. Kristi says:

    My favorite books were The Boxcar Children. They were my brother’s books when he was a kid and I grew to love the mystery stories and couldn’t wait to read more of them.

    • christine says:

      The Boxcar Children was one of my favorite series too. I think one of my teachers used to read those to our class. I loved hearing about them living in a boxcar and how they made use out of the things they found.

  14. I think Emily’s book looks like it will be loved by all lucky enough to read it. I think one of my favorite books was “Johnny Appleseed.” Kind of magical to a child how a tiny seed can grow to a pretty apple. I wish Emily lots of luck and joy with her Children’s book.

  15. Jeanna R says:

    My favorite book was Horton Hatches the Egg. I used to read it to my neighbors all the time when I babysat. I now read it to my own child. It is so inspirational.
