"This book is my favorite because when it was read to me as a child, it began my love affair with reading," Jodi says. "It brought me to another world of imagination."

What book has opened you or your child's minds to other worlds?

knuffle_bunny.JPGAuthor/illustrator extraordinaire Mo Willems has many fans here at Booklights (and beyond), and Mom Karen counts herself among them.

"My daughter loves Knuffle Bunny in all its forms (including the sequel). She adores the combination of photography and cartoons and has been able to recite the story since before she could read."

Many kids know a story word-for-word before they can read. Do your kids have any favorites that they know backward and forward?
