I have every word of this book memorized. I could recite this book in my sleep. I probably have. It’s a classic for a reason. There’s something about spunky little Madeline on her Parisian adventures that my daughters can’t get enough of. I loved Madeline when I was a little girl, and now my own girls love her, and it’s fun to share that with them.
