Sarah Lyons – Why Adults Can Read Whatever They Want

PAGE 2: Why Adults Can Read Whatever They Want

WildThings

Reason 2: With that said, children’s books actually can teach you something new.

Or even if it’s not entirely new, it might be something you need to remind yourself about. Books for kids and young adults often deal with heavy themes in surprisingly poignant ways. If you re-read an old book for nostalgia, you might be surprised at some of the nuances. Plus, there’s a surprising number of classic literature that was actually intended for children.
