And a follow-up list…

Oh, and now I’ve found a follow-up 5 More Children’s Books for Grown-ups on the same site. (brainpickings.org) This list is much more interesting and wide-ranging. Pinocchio for example. I read it several months ago and haven’t figured out how to write about it yet.

Children’s Books for Grown-ups

Here’s an interesting list I came across today: 5 Children’s Books for Grown-ups, c/o brainpickings.org.

Pretty good list, although I am fairly certain that the last quote comes not from L. Frank Baum’s book but from the excellent 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz.

It is making me think of doing a list of 5 Children’s Movies for Grown-ups… except that it seems like every children’s film made in the last fifteen or so years was actually made more for the parents than the kids…
