A New Year’s Gift for Lovers of Kid Lit. . . .

 

What a gift to start out the new year! I absolutely LOVE this funny little article in the New York Times about the science behind some of our favorite children’s books.

If, like George, you’re curious to know the answers to these perplexing questions click on the link below.  Enjoy!!!!

LOL!
