In a person’s lifetime it is guaranteed the phrase, “Life is not a fairytale,” will be heard at least once. As we grow older we begin to disassociate ourselves from all things childlike simply because of the connotation that what involves children is childish. While abstract ideas are important in adult lives it is equally important to remember our foundation and the simple fact that just because something –or someone– is younger does not mean we cannot learn from it. From Mme. Leprince de Beaumont’s first traditional telling of Beauty and the Beast to J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, Children’s Literature has served as the foundation on which today’s children view life and while we adults may get a little lost it’s important to remember: Dr. Seuss thought you might.
