Sunday Quote

I've never quite figured out what I get from children's literature that I don't get from adult literature, but there's something. The diffence between novels for adults and novels for children isn't merely a matter of cover design, bookstore placement, and the age of the protagonist. It's a certain quality of atmosphere.

- Gretchen Rubin, The Happiness Project

Children's books don't have to be serious or "meaningful" or "insightful" or "the great American novel." All children's books have to be is imaginative and fun.

hi there, I'll have to pay more attention to children's literature, although I am having a ball with fairy tales right now! Thanks for stopping by my blog :)
