We recently asked our Facebook fans what classic children's book they would like to pass onto their kids. In honor of World Book and Copyright Day, April 23, 2011, Sony Electronics studied people's reading habits, and this was one of the questions they asked. In the U.S., they found 20 percent of resondents picked The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss. However, according to our fans, it didn't make the list.
Here are the classic children's books our fans selected. Please add yours in the comments below!
