Winter 2011 Kids' Next List

“Some years ago, I read an article that proposed that children didn't like to read because contemporary publishing trends had dumbed-down the language, making books boring. A child should certainly learn to understand words like 'dog' and 'frog,' but where were the words that enlivened the story and stretched the reader's imagination? Leave it to Lemony Snicket to create a children's picture book that celebrates not only 'dog' and 'cake' and 'goat,' but also words like 'haberdashery' and 'despondent' and 'panache!”
