Works about this Work

10 Great Books That All Children Should Read Belle Y. Alderman , 2015 single work essay
— Appears in: The Conversation , 21 December 2015;

'The books we remember strongly as adults are often the ones we read as children. Not only do we remember particular books, but the emotions we experienced.

Children’s books are reread and remembered over a lifetime, and many authors believe their best writing is for children.

Rereading favourites is a good thing. With each rereading, deeper meanings emerge and understanding becomes richer.' (Introduction)
