Children’s literature welcomes readers to know what it means to be a child, and allows us to recapture and re-enter our earliest worlds.  In each of these four evenings, one of the presenters will discuss the experience of the developing child through some of their favorite literature. We will begin with a survey evening, and discuss the meanings of stories and reading to children, from the earliest rhymes of childhood play, to the vampire fantasies of early adolescence. The next evening, we focus on picture books, and then, on the third, we will examine middle childhood and the stories of Dr. Seuss. On the final evening, we’ll read and discuss literature of adolescent love and turmoil.
