Bookbits for June 19th, 2012

  • As a parent myself, I found this piece rather interesting: How to Read a Racist Book to Your Kids.  So many classic children’s books are as glorious as they are racist, or homophobic, or otherwise anachronistic – and often you don’t realize it until you read them aloud to your child.  How do you navigate through the tricky bits?
  • Quiz! How much poetry do you know by heart?  Evidently more than I thought: 7/10!  I have to say that the ones I had wrong did seem to fit in better with the original.  *cough*
