15 comments on “Too Old For Kids’ Lit?

  1. I adore children’s literature as a grown up and as a parent. Some of my all-time favorites – like To Kill a Mockingbird and now The Book Thief- are classed as kidlit, but appropriate and touching at all ages. Shel Silverstein’s poetry can’t be out-grown, nor can the many folktales and native stories beautifully written, illustrated and published “for kids.”

  2. I read some wonderful science fiction for kids years ago. Unfortunately, it was not by well known authors, and I can’t remember the titles. But, I do remember the charm and wonder that filled these books. Thanks for reminding me of happy times curled up with a good book.

  3. I love children/youth literature and media. This year, I’ve delved back into a lot of movies labelled for kids and liked a good few (especially Disney’s Tinker Bell ones). I still have most of my childhood books and like picking some again even though I’m turning 30 in a couple of weeks.

    • That’s a great point actually. Most people wouldn’t bat an eyelid at adults watching ‘kids’ movies so it’s a shame some people feel they outgrow certain books.

      Thanks for your comment.

  4. Besides that I am a author of young adult fantasy, I enjoy reading it very much as well!
    I think that people shouldn’t be that hung up on the words ‘Children’s books’ and ‘Young adult’. Most of my reviews are written by people above 30 so I think it’s more a matter of how old you really feel 😉

  5. I think if you love stories, you love them all – no matter the age group. I regularly revisit the classics, the books I read as a child and still find magic in them. When I read to my children, and now my nephew, I do so with pleasure and the simple joy of a reader 🙂
