Podcast: Play in new window
You’d think it would be easy to pick favourite children’s books. Indeed, that’s what Mark thought.
As it turns out, there are far too many amazing children’s books, authors and illustrators to limit ourselves to just ten choices. Even so, Mark suggested we try compiling our Desert Island 10 — books we’d need to have with us if we were stranded on a desert island.
The list that follows captures the names of books, book series and authors mentioned.
Are you brave or crazy enough to create your own Desert Island 10? Share your list as a comment on this post, send your MP3 recorded or type-written list via email to email@example.com, or phone it in to our listener feedback line (206-350-6487).
* Congratulations to Andrea Beaty. Her book, Iggy Peck, Architect, is one of Time Magazine’s top ten children’s books of 2007!
