Story time: the five children’s books every adult should read
But I do know, with more certainty than I usually feel about anything, what it is not: it is not exclusively for children. When I write, I write for two people, myself, age 12, and myself, now, and the book has to satisfy two distinct but connected appetites. My year-old self wanted autonomy, peril, justice, food and above all a kind of density of atmosphere into which I could step and be engulfed. My adult self wants all those things, and also: acknowledgments of fear, love, failure. So what I try for when I write — failing often, but trying — is to put down in as few words as I can the things that I most urgently and desperately want children to know and adults to remember. Those of us who write for children are trying to arm them for the life ahead with everything we can find that is true.
For some children this involves starting with basic books with simpler and fewer words; while others take to reading with speedy gusto, zipping through picture books and straight onto chapter books. You can trust our independent reviews. We may earn commission from some of the retailers, but we never allow this to influence selections, which are formed from real-world testing and expert advice. The topics are age-old — friendship, truth and the quest for knowledge. But the humour, illustrations and poo jokes are bang up to date.
