A question for David Berger

Q: What was your favorite children’s book?

A: I want to answer this question in two ways: My favorite book when I was a child, and my favorite children’s book.

As a kid, my favorite book was Treasure Island. After seeing the 1950 movie, (“Arrrh!”), I insisted that my Mom get me a copy. She did, and I read it myself in about a week. (I was six.)

My favorite book for kids is The Once and Future King. I read it to my own sons.

I believe that the “classic” children’s stories an fairy tales have a heft to them that kids like and need.
