Q: What are some of your favorite picture books – either current ones or ones from your childhood?
A: The very, very first book I can ever recall being read to me was Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. At one point in my very early childhood, I had the entire book memorized but -- alas, that time has long since past. I can still remember the beginning of the book: "A told B and B told C, I'll meet you at the top of the coconut tree." I confess that I haven't read a picture book since I started reading Harry Potter at age five.
