We recently hosted The Family Care Tent at the 55th Annual Yarmouth Clam Festival. This annual summer fair is held right here in the home of Family Leadership Center: Yarmouth, ME. Our Family Care Tent was a place to change or feed a baby, relax in the shade, and take a rest from all the action.

We asked everyone we met over the weekend: What’s your favorite children’s book?

If you couldn’t be here this year, you can still get in on the fun!

Check out our video compilation of some of the answers below, and scroll down for the full list of wonderful children’s literature!
