Two Authors Who Sum Up My Ideas About Children’s Books

From the Tumblr blog of Amanda Patterson via Imagination Soup is a quote from John le Carre: “The cat sat on the mat” is not the beginning of a story. “The cat sat on the dog’s mat” is.

This should ring a bell for tutors using the PALS program!

And from the What Kids Are Reading blog a C.S. Lewis quote: “A children’s story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children’s story in the slightest”.
