Children’s Picture Books

yello80s circus babyPicture books give us our first sense of literary freedom- sure mummy and daddy read these to us but when we are small and without words we can turn the pages a thousand times and the story we make up is different. We ‘pretend’ to read in babble and years later when we have children of our own we hunt high and low for these same books, trying them out to see if those stories changed; settling for echoing our own parents’ telling of the actual words on the page.
