The Case for Good Taste in Children’s Books

Today I wanted to share a great article from the July/August 2013 issue of Imprimis, the monthly magazine of Hillsdale College. I finally got around to reading my paper copy and found the online edition so I could post a link for you.

Some people feel it doesn’t matter what kids read, as long as they’re reading something. However, in this article, Meghan Cox Gurdon shares some shocking revelations about the increasingly dark and ugly genre of Young Adult literature – books that are aimed at readers between 12-18 years of age.
