Children's Book Authors on Giving the Gift of Reading

Almost everyone has a favorite children's book

What books do you love and want to pass on to your children? The Leonard Lopate Book Club wants to hear from you about the books you're giving to young readers over the holidays... and all year round... in the hopes that they'll love them as much as you do! To guide the conversation, we'll be joined by two very accomplished children's book authors: Jon Scieszka, author of books like The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales and Math Curse, founder of Guys Read, and a former National Ambassador for Young People's Literature, and Jacqueline Woodson, National Book Award winner, Young People’s Poet Laureate, and author of Brown Girl Dreaming and Miracle's Boys.

Write us in the comments and tell us about a book you love, why you love it, and why you want the kids in your life to love it too. Also let us know if you've given the gift of a book that's backfired!
