Can You Name the Children’s Book From the Opening Line?

Think back to your childhood, to the nights when mom or dad might have lied down with you and read you a story until you fell asleep, or the first time you read a chapter book by yourself, or even the moment you bonded with your big brother or sister as they read to you. Children’s books hold power, and they can bring us back to those amazing moments in our lives.

Take a trip back to your childhood and see how well you can remember those books that charmed your early reading days. Not only that, we’re going to make it a little bit more challenging; we’ll give you nothing but the first sentence of the book, and you have to tell us which book it is. Dig deep back into those early memories and see how well your first literary experiences have stuck. It’s time to play some kid lit trivia.
