My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Why do adults read children's books?

When I tell some people that I'm reading children's literature, they frown askance and say, But those are for CHILDREN!

  • I laugh and say, BUT who writes children's literature?
  • It's not possible to write good children's literature unless you also read it and keep up with the trends
  • Children's literature provides a comforting escape from the stressful demands of life.
  •  I'm making up for all those years when I was a very poor reader.
 
Why do YOU read children's literature?
