"Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child."
I read a lot of books aimed at younger readers. Sometimes it's a desire for a simpler story. Sometimes it's wanting to revisit an author or work that I enjoyed as a kid. Sometimes it's tired eyes longing for a bigger font. Sometimes it's the fact that there's a great deal of depth to be uncovered in works written for younger audiences. I like this quote because I know that I occasionally read books written for youngsters as a way to connect with younger people and to feel like a kid again. But I also like the duality that points out how great stories can bring out maturity in children as well. As a child, were there any books that helped you grow up? As an adult, do you read books aimed at younger readers?
