Childhood is a special and magical time, and has provided much inspiration for both writers of children’s literature and writers of works for adults. The literature selections in this mini-anthology explore childhood from both the perspectives of adults looking back and children experiencing childhood as it happens. The accompanying articles and activities offer information on childhood in culture, encourage children to look back at how they’ve grown, and offer suggestions for classic childhood pastimes that families can enjoy today.
