“You know who my gods are, who I believe in fervently? Herman Melville, Emily Dickinson — she’s probably the top — Mozart, Shakespeare, Keats. These are wonderful gods who have gotten me through the narrow straits of life.” -Maurice Sendak author and illustrator
I adore children’s books. The tactile experience of handling a book, sharing a story, taking in the illustrations, warm snuggles before falling asleep it’s easily a highlight in my daily routine. I don’t mind an e-reader for my own use but when it’s story time with Oliva it has to be a page turner, literally. Anything involving Maurice Sendak’s work is preferable.
Do you like e-readers? Do you have a favorite childhood author/illustrator?
