ABOUT THE BLOG
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– isn’t considered adult does not mean we cannot learn. 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.
