Radical Change: Books for Youth in a Digital Age (1999) by Eliza Dresang (via presentingbooks)
Right on. My thoughts exactly.
If you write or plan to write YA, or younger childrens’ books ever.
Nobody wants to be talked down to.
Hey tumblr, want to help increase childhood literacy? Want to donate books to kids all over the world?
We Give Books is just the place for you.
All the books are picture books and simple children’s lit, so they’re quick to page through. If you have kids you can sit them in front of the computer and read to, or with them. But, even if you don’t have kids (like me) you can just enjoy some cute picture books, and the satisfaction that you’re helping increase childhood literacy worldwide.
If you have free time while you’re online, it really only takes a few minutes to pick out a book, and virtually flip through it. You don’t even have to read it, if you don’t want to.
Literacy is an important issue. And, getting children interested in reading should be a number one, worldwide priority. So please, if you’re even half as passionate as I am about this, join the site and donate a few books.
And please, reblog this and get the word out. Thank you.
