Great column by John Miller (who I met at the CN conference two years ago) on NRO about the importance of children’s literature. Read it here.

His quote by C.S. Lewis pretty much sums up the article:

“Critics who treat adult as a term of approval,” he said, “instead of merely a descriptive term, cannot be adults themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence.”

This is exactly why I can admit to be a huge fan of A.A. Milne. The stories are timeless, the writing is incredible, and who doesn’t like fluffy Teddy Bears.

    I was just browsing various blogs as I was doing a search on the word poster, and I just wanted to say that I really like what you’ve done with your blog, even though it wasn’t particularly related to what I searched for. I appreciate your postings, and your blog is a good example of how a blog should be done. I’ve only just recently started a Posters website – feel free to visit it when you get a chance if you wish. Much success, antonio.
