No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally (and far more often) worth reading at the age of fifty.
Today marks the first day of the 2016 Classic Children’s Literature Event! I hope for a fun month of revisiting old favorites and meeting new ones, and for plenty of great discussion about children’s classics both well known and nearly forgotten.
Starting today, the Event Logo at the top right of the blog will link to this page, which will be the link page for the event. (And this post should also be a “sticky” post at the top of the blog.) Please use the comments below to link to your posts for this month. This will make it easier to for everyone to find each other’s posts! There will be a separate page for the Emil and the Detectives readalong which will go live nearer to the discussion weekend. At the end of the month–and half-way through if there are enough posts to warrant it–I will round up all the links onto one post for ease of discover.
As I said before, I’m not too fussy about the particulars for this event–as long as it’s still April it’s never too late to join!
