Today is International Children’s Book Day!
And I say HOOOORAY for children’s literature. When I did my Master’s thesis way back when on the art of writing quality children’s literature I had the privilege of interviewing some of the genres most outstanding authors. And through that I learned so much about the beautiful talent involved in writing for the youngest audience.
I have adored children’s lit. as a child, a teacher, and now a mom.
These well-crafted and beloved books are a gift not only to the tiny ear’s that hear it read a loud, but to the reader just as much.
So cheers to you, wonderful books! Cheers to you.
What is one of your favorite children’s literature works of art?
