On a recent visit to Philadelphia, I went into the Free Library of Philadelphia (open on Sundays!). Part of it was closed for renovations, but the building itself is beautiful and there was a neat exhibit on Dickens.
On the way out, I saw this quote on a sign:
“Good children’s literature appeals not only to the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.” -Anonymous
Something to think about.
(The Rodin Museum is just a quick walk from the library. The Thinker (above) is there, as well as The Gates of Hell and The Burghers of Calais. Worth wandering by if you’re in the area!)
