Children should experience and learn to love literature

Has this ever happened to you? You’re in the airport terminal waiting to board a flight, or perhaps you’ve just taken a seat on a city bus. Across from you sits a woman reading a book. You tilt your head to scan the title (you’re always curious about what people are reading), and suddenly your heart skips a beat. It’s your favorite! Customary reserve takes a back seat as you gasp, “I love that book!” She looks up, eyes suddenly alight. “So do I!”

The next few minutes might strike bemused observers as a long-lost-relative reunion or charismatic revival service: sentences stampeding, hands fluttering, swoony sighs. It’s the meeting of two book lovers. Rare in person, but they meet continually online, over exclamation-studded reader reviews and blog reminiscences of lonely childhoods transformed by Jane Eyre or Robin Hood. They are living portraits of the Emily Dickinson poem: “There is no frigate ...

The same headline is often heard as the justification for children to read "anything", frequently titles such as Harry Potter series.

Clearly, the headline representing present public opinion should be exposed as just as dangerous as potentially enriching. You never hear the headline used to justify reading the Bible or Puritan literature or that of 19th century Southern Baptists, because of sharp prejudice and the censorship imposed by Political Correctness. When these are suggested, "let them read anything" suddenly becomes qualified according to their unscriptural terms and opposition to the truth, even among "conservatives".

Good comment; when I saw the headline, I thought, it all depends on the content of the literature in question.
