What was your favorite toy as a child?
It was actually not a toy. It was a book. Any book. I was a very shy kid and I would be very happy just sitting by myself reading instead of trying to make friends. Fortunately my daughters seem to have inherited that love of reading—not the shyness, thankfully—and I think that if asked about their favorite toy, they’d give the same answer.
