I’m so excited to be starting on this new enterprise. I kept a blog years ago during my three years working in Japan but wow, things have changed since then! It was even a challenge just to figure out which site to go with. Still have no idea how to customize the site, but I figure that I’ll learn as I go. Right now I just want to get started!
I’m currently finishing up my Masters in Children’s Literature and it’s just hit me that after three years of reading and discussing incredible books, it’s all coming to an end. What I’ve enjoyed most in my course was examining books I loved as a child through the eyes of an adult. I enjoy thinking about what it was I loved about the book when I was young and considering new takes on it through an adult lens. I’d love to hear what you think and would also love to receive recommendations of books I could post about. Let me know what books from your childhood continue to bring pleasure to the children in your life.
Finding like-minded people who share my enthusiasm for children’s and young adult books is my major goal for this blog. I hope to start some discussion around favourites from our childhood bookshelves as well as current material. My plan is to post once a week. That might be a bit ambitious but we’ll see how it goes. I may be hampered by my technical inability at first but fingers crossed.
