self guided tour

Kid-Lit Classics

Step into the creative minds of classic children’s book authors by visiting the historic residences of some of your favorite childhood writers!

At the heart of every great story is its author. Over the years children’s book authors have found inspiration in the Village. Whether they’re writing about monsters or a family of ducks they’ve lived, worked, and played in the neighborhood.

Head out from Charles Street with a visit to the home of Goodnight Moon’s author Margaret Wise Brown. As you move west, you’ll make stops along the way to the homes and studios of beloved classic children’s writers and illustrators.
