Books for kids, kids at heart

The Gazette (Cedar Rapids, IA)

Children's book authors tend to read in a wide variety of genres, so I asked my fellow authors to name the best children's book they read in 2013. Their responses provide plenty to keep readers entertained through these cold winter months. Read about Golden Books, Harry Potter, animals, counting books and more.
