- 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?
Hi Madeleine - can I turn the tables and be child reading adult books! I was a good reader, now I struggle to sit and read a book and if I do - my head doesn't come out for a long time.ReplyDelete
Enjoy - and I bet there's lots to learn from all those books too ... Happy Christmas and New Year in the meantime .. cheers Hilary
Now I hadn't considered that but yes my mother was the same. Thanks Hilary.Delete
Now and then, if I'm a bit jaded, I like to return to the books that inspired me as a child. The Secret Garden, for instance, is a fabulous book, and no-one is ever to old to read it!ReplyDelete
Yes that is so true, Joanne.Delete
I love children's books! I fall right into the stories. I am always surprised when people say they don't read books for kids. It is fun to read all kinds of stories. :)ReplyDelete
Absolutely I couldn't agree more. Thanks JessDelete
Actually, I don't read many kids' books. I think the last ones I read were the Narnia books right before the first movie came out.ReplyDelete
Happy New Year!
I can understand, Alex, though i have to say How much you miss ;O)Delete
