We should all implant these terrific girls in our brains. Reading excellent kid’s books as an adult reveals the world to us in new ways, reminds us of childhood and teaches us about our young selves from a new perspective. Sometimes, we might even remember parts we didn’t even know we’d forgotten. These girls are rad informants. You’ll love ‘em.
