Your Top 25 Favourite Children’s Books

Over the holidays, as part of our giveaway with our partners, First Book Canada and First Book, we asked our followers to tell us their favourite children’s books, and what a list we compiled! We couldn’t just let this information fade away into Facebook cyberspace, so we’ve made a list of the top 25 mentions and published it here on our blog.
