runawaybunny.gifToday's Show and Tale comes from Kathleen, a mom who picked Margaret Wise Brown's The Runaway Bunny. Brown and illustrator Clement Hurd, well loved for Goodnight Moon, created another classic with this sweet tale.

"It's a wonderful way to let your child know that you'd search to the ends of the earth for her," Kathleen said.

Have you read The Runaway Bunny? What are some other comforting books that you and your child love?

Welcome to Show and Tale, a new Tuesday feature from Booklights. Each week, we'll be asking a quick question about books: your all-time favorite, your current read, the bedtime story your kids ask for every night.

We're starting out with a simple but hard-to-pick-just-one question: What's your favorite children's book and why?

Esther picked Brown Bear, Brown Bear from Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carl. "I've got great memories of my third-grade teacher reading it to our class."

Cindy picked Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus from Mo Willems. "My 2.5 year old loves it because she gets to say 'NO, PIGEON' on every page."

Susan picked Richard Scarry's What Do People Do All Day?. "It shows moms and dads working in and out of the home."

And Miss Lori, a familiar face to preschool fans of PBS KIDS, named her favorite, The Giving Tree, in this chat with Supersister Kristen:

So what's your favorite and why do you love it? Tell us below for a chance to win free books from Booklights.
