I love children's books. I always have. I still read them and feel lucky that I sometimes get to review them. It is so wonderful to be able to share my childhood favorites with my little boy. My husband was not read to very much as a child so he is finally catching up on the kidlit canon that he missed.
I just saw this wonderful quotation by C.S. Lewis today:
"When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up."
