New Blog – Old Books

Well, I’ve been blogging for about nine months at Classical Carousel, reviewing classic literature and a few other odds and ends.  Among those classics have been some wonderful children’s books, and reading them has made me realize that I’d like to make a project of reading many more.  Yet, rather than mix the adult classics with the children’s classics, I’ve decided to create a new blog specifically for the children’s literature that I read.  So, may I introduce:

Children’s Classic Book Carousel will not only include reviews of classic children’s books; I also plan to include some basic literary analysis techniques for those readers who may homeschool their children, or perhaps parents who simply want to have some basic guidance to encourage deeper reading.

Children’s Classic Book Carousel won’t be as active as Classical Carousel, but I will attempt to regularly post reviews as I get around to reading the various and sundry children’s classics that inhabit my bookshelves at home.  So please visit my new blog to discover some old, well-loved children’s classics and many others that may be new to you.  You’ll be very welcome!

  1. I love it when there are fellow book bloggers who enjoy reading children's classics as much as I do. I will certainly be following your new blog. The great thing about children's books is that they are short enough that read-along are a lot less burdensome. As far as children's classics are concerned, picture books tend to be the most neglected. I don't have any children of my own, but I have worked a lot with children and have a deep respect for children's literature. In the words of my favorite author, Roald Dahl, ""Children's books are harder to write. It's tougher to keep a child interested because a child doesn't have the concentration of an adult. A child knows the television is in the next room. It's tough to hold a child, but it's a lovely thing to try to do."

  2. Thanks for mentioning picture books, Fariba. I need to add some more of those to my master children's list.

    Love the quote! I'll look forward to your comments on my blog!

Thanks for visiting. I'd love to hear from you and have you join in the discussion!
