My three kids, Sam (10), Jellybean (8), and Mad Dog (6), also love The Greatest Showman.  And they love books.  When they saw my tag post, they decided they wanted to fill it out too!  So here are their answers to the prompts :-)  (My husband Cowboy got in on the fun once in a while too.)

  1. Aw, this is so adorable!

    I cracked up at Cowboy's answer for the 'This Is Me' prompt. :D

    1. Eva, glad you enjoyed it :-) And yes, I was amused by the answers he tossed in too. Lawrence is a cute picture book about a hedgehog who loves coconut cream pie, and Cowboy is obsessed with pie, so... can you tell he was hungry when we were putting this together?

  2. "I refuse to answer on grounds it may incriminate me"--lol!!!! That's priceless xD

    1. Jessica, hee! They just got all stubborn and refused to answer some of them, so I had to put *something* there... and it might as well be something funny, right?

  3. This is so great! XD I'd have to say that "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" is a top choice for relateablity. Although the cookies story from "Frog and Toad Together" gives it some pretty tight competition...

    1. Awww, thanks, Lizzy! And yes, Frog & Toad's cookies are very inspirational :-9
