  • Katie Lawrence

    I think my favorite classic children’s book character is Little Red Riding Hood, particularly if she’s in a more fierce retelling. She can be a pretty amazing heroine.

  • Mitchell Linda

    Favorite classic book was a book with many fairy tales in it….Thumbelina was my favorite. I wanted to be her!

  • Hey Tara, I just realized my daughter has a she-shed! Jealous?
