"What children's book changed the way you see the world?"
Anita Silvey asked this question to more than one hundred of our most respected and admired leaders in society, and she learned about the books that shaped financiers, actors, singers, athletes, activists, artists, comic book creators, novelists, illustrators, teachers...
The lessons they recall are inspiring, instructive, and illuminating. And the books they remember resonate as influential reading choices for families. EVERYTHING I NEED TO KNOW I LEARNED FROM A CHILDREN'S BOOK--with its full color excerpts of beloved children's books, is a treasury and a guide: a collection of fascinating essays and THE gift book of the year for families.
With a unique career in children's books, ANITA SILVEY has served both as the Editor of THE HORN BOOK MAGAZINE and Publisher of a major children's book imprint. She is the author of several books, and she lives in Boston, Massachusetts.
