March. In like a lion, out like a… cold wet lion.
Couple of goodies for your Friday Links Library this week:
- From WBUR’s On Point: host Tom Ashbrook on Goodnight Moon and the University of Wisconsin study we noted last week. The discussion asks “what we seek and share in young children’s books.” With guests Leonard Marcus, LeVar Burton, and Starr LaTronica.
- And just because I adore LeVar Burton, here’s a video of him on Reading Rainbow reading The Music in Derrick’s Heart by Gwendolyn Battle-Lavert.
- A new study from the University of Toronto is sure to generate strong opinions: anthropomorphized animals in kids’ books may affect the way children learn about the natural world.
- And as the dystopian series hits the big screen this weekend, here’s a terrific Smithsonian interview with four kids who love the Divergent book trilogy by Veronica Roth.
