Summary
"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... Writers (Anna Quindlen, Sherman Alexie, Bobbie Ann Mason, Azar Nafisi, Angela Johnson, David McCullough, Ann Tyler, Dave Eggers, ); inventors and scientists (Steve Wozniak, Andrew Weaver); politicians and activists (Donna E. Shalala, Robert F. Kennedy Jr.); artists (Wendell Minor, Pete Seeger); and the media (Lesley Stahl, Scott Simon) are just some of the people who share their stories. 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
