Read everything she writes
A winning polemic about how reading a children's book can remind us of the need to see things from different perspectives
Rundell's pen is gold-tipped
Rundell is now unarguably in the first rank
As an unashamed lover and reader of children's literature, I adored Katherine Rundell's Why You Should Read Children's Books ... [it's] time to remind yourself of the reason you fell in love with books and reading in the first place
It's a very short book but it packs a real punch. Rundell makes an irresistible case and reminds you of the wonder and excitement of reading, discovering and learning. She is a brilliant and ferocious communicator; I found her use of language and some of her tropes thrilling and fascinating and enormously generative. A real delight
Children's author Katherine Rundell is a fellow in English Literature at Oxford so she knows how to put an argument together. Here, she delivers a winning polemic about how reading a children's book can remind us of the need to see things from different perspectives
The Costa Award-winning children's author makes an impassioned case for adults to continue reading children's books. She explains what they can teach us, including kindness and courage, risk-taking and morality.
Just delicious
