Celebrity moms dish up favorite kid-lit lines

Yahoo and the Associated Press asked some famous moms what their favorite lines were from kid literature and why. Here are some of my favorites.

Gina Neely, host of "Down Home with the Neely's" on the Food Network

"We girls hold up this world as we build our self-esteem. We know that discipline will turn a princess into a queen," from "Girls Hold Up This World" by Jada Pinkett-Smith.

She says: "That is so true, and I tell my girls all the time that they are the best, that everyone shines in different lights, and that you have to find and figure out your light and let it shine through. I teach them to follow their own minds and that they always have choices and consequences."

Maria Canals-Barrera, Theresa Russo on Disney Channel's "Wizards of Waverly Place"; Connie Torres in Disney's "Camp Rock."

"After all, a person's a person no matter how small," from "Horton Hears a Who" by Dr. Seuss.

She says: "It reminds them of how significant they are as little kids. Just cause they're little, it doesn't mean they're not powerful, meaningful, important and worthy of respect."
