I don’t have a lot of time today because I’ll have to be out the door soon, but I thought I would leave you with a link to fascinating facts about children’s books. A lot of times, we read books as children but we have no idea all the larger messages at work within them or the points that the author was trying to make. Take Dr. Suess for example – his work was political but as a kid you don’t realize that Yertle the Turtle is talking about Hitler or that The Butter Battle Book is addressing the arms race. You just enjoy the stories.
So I hope you enjoy these fun facts found here. I know I certainly learned a thing or two. I think my favorite is the Alice in Wonderland used to be banned in parts China because the animals could talk and only humans are meant to talk. Anyways, let me know your favorite fact below!
