Choosing books for children – A warning

“Childhood is the time and children’s books are the place for powerful emotions, powerful language, powerful art… There is no room for cutesy books, dull books, or books that talk down. Children are not inferior. They may be small in stature but not in what they feel, think, listen, and see.”
HEARNE, Betsy (2000): Choosing Books for Children: A Commonsense Guide, University of Illinois Press, Illinois.
