I love children's books, because I write them. So, my appreciation for other author's has just soared since I started writing my own books. Need something for your reading nook, I've got your back!
Here are 11 quotes I love from other children's book authors:

3 Most people in the world know that most people are very good. - Michael Leannah
4 Take Chances. Make Mistake. Get Messy. - Ms. Frizzle, Joanna Cole
5 I think we dream so we don’t have to be apart for so long. If we’re in each other’s dreams, we can be together all the time. - Winnie the Pooh, A.A. Milne

11 Anyone can memorize facts and figures, but to really learn something, you've got to go out and do it for yourself. Just follow your curiosity. - Curious George, Margret & H.A. Rey
The beauty of children's books is that they are often just as amazing for adults, as they are for kids. They simply remove the clutter and get straight to the point. That's one of the reasons I pick many of the topics that I do, the value to parents, as well as kids.
