Ann Packer's five most important books

Ann Packer, author of The Dive from Clausen’s Pier and Songs Without Words, listed her five most important books for Newsweek. And addressed a couple of related issues:

Alice Munro's "Friend of My Youth." Hard to pick any one Munro title. Her stories let me see people and begin to understand them.

A book you hope parents read to their children:

Dr. Seuss's "The Sneetches and Other Stories." Star-bellied or plain-bellied, doesn't matter.
