Female Characters in Children’s Literature #kidbkgrp
So we just had a #kidbkgrp on Twitter ! It’s an online chat group for people who love to talk about children’s literature – and I’d love to see you there next time (in about three weeks or so…?). Keep an eye on the hashtag anyway because if anything exciting happens in the world of children’s literature, I’m sure we’ll want to talk about it 😉 Anyway I promise to burble joyously and plentifully about the next one so you’re sure to hear about it.
So. Inspired by this article (which I blogged in response to here) , we discussed female characters in children’s literature. The good, the bad, the brilliant and our personal favourites. There’s a whole host of reading suggestions featuring some brilliant sounding heroines. It was really interesting to see that we tended to plump for heroines when naming our personal favourites – I was wondering whether people like Maleficent would get a mention, but they didn’t which is definitely something to think about!
Here’s the storify and here’s a link to the hashtag on Twitter.
See you at the next chat! 😀
