From CNN Entertainment Online, here’s a book-related story you won’t want to miss:
“When adults review children’s books, they often focus on the simplicity of the language. Or the beauty of the artwork. Or the appropriateness of the subject matter.
A child might be excited by something else — say, the hygiene habits of a grape. Or the ability of a story about a squirrel and a shark to conform to real life.
And sometimes, to borrow from Art Linkletter, kids say the darndest things.
