Writing Up to Children

Writing Up to Children

Here’s a great little article that articulates how I view books and, more importantly, children.

Readers rise to the occasion.  It is important that we, as learners, be constantly challenged and exposed to new language.  It pushes us to ask questions and discover more about our world.  Sometimes I ask myself, “Is that word too hard for a middle grade novel?”  Usually, the answer is, “No!”  Assume that writers are providing readers with a chance to expand their vocabulary and knowledge.
