Writing and Illustrating

 

Children Reading Preferences

Posted: 28 Jan 2010 10:00 PM PST

Since we write for children, I figured you would be interested in the post that David L Harrison brought up on his blog.  I thought the information was very interesting and felt you would, too.

This issue of Language Arts (January 2010) includes an article by Denise Davila and Lisa Patrick. The article is called “Asking the Experts: What Children Have to Say about Their Reading Preferences” and presents the findings of several studies on the subject. The authors remind us, “For the most part, adults control the world of children’s literature: adults write the books; adults choose which books to publish; adults review the books; adults bestow the awards on books; and adults purchase the books for their homes, book stores, and libraries. In the midst of all this adult control, children’s opinions are often overlooked.”

Be sure to check Kathy’s blog for the rest of the article. http://kathytemean.wordpress.com/

My Favorites:

I love the children's movies Wizard of Oz and the Neverending Story. Both movies make me feel the lesson that hope is alive and well. After seeing UP this past week, it just might have a chance at being added to this list.

I love the cool colors of blues and purples.Those colors are peaceful for me.

I love The Velveteen Rabbit. Even as an adult, I still feel the urge to cry when he becomes real. I know, silly, but a good book can make me laugh and cry as it takes me on a magical journey.
