#kidbkgrp recap – Re/reading classic children’s literature

Last night, we talked about re/reading classic children’s literature. It’s a topic that seems perenially interesting when you apply it to children’s literature, and it’s a topic which is perenially difficult to actually define. What is a classic? Who decides a classic? Can classic status be revoked? How do books become classics? And how do you deal with ‘difficult’ content when re-reading classics?

You can find the storify of the chat here and here’s a link to the previous chats.

The next chat is on August 7th and we talk about responsibility in children’s literature. See you there?
