My children's favorite book: A book from 1948 from her great grandma's house called Boo Who used to be scared of the dark by Munroe Leaf. It's about a cat who teaches a little boy not to be afraid. Strangely, it is the boy who is named "boo." (I found a copy of it on Etsy here.) She also loves First the Egg, Green Eggs and Ham, and any of the If You Give A.... books.
A children's book illustrator I adore: Mo Willems
If my life so far were turned into a children's book the title would be: Cheese & Champagne for Jaime
