I have a B.A. in psychology from Yale and a Ph.D. in neuroscience from Georgetown. I've taught reading to little kids and biology to big kids. But let's get to the more interesting stuff.
Favorite food: Chocolate. Not very original, I know, but most people who claim to have a different favorite food are either lying or missing several very important taste buds.
Favorite animals: Do my kids count? Other than those four wild animals, I really love the baby bunny rabbits that hop into the bushes when I jog past them on the trail near my house.
Favorite children's books: Waaaaay too many to list. But "A Birthday for Frances," "The Perfect Nest," "The Big Orange Splot," and "This is Not My Hat" are a few for the picture book crowd. For older kids, anything by Gordon Korman, Susan Cooper, or L.M Montgomery.
