Tell us Your Favorite Children's Books!

Thank you to everyone who stopped by during our Open House on Wednesday! And congratulations to Anna Perrone, winner of the Guessing Game Contest -- there were 219 buttons in the jar, hers was the closest guess with 202!

We mixed and mingled and shared ideas about our favorite children's books. Here are the lists submitted by folks who stopped by the Open House. Feel free to add your own 10 favorites!
