We live in an era where people read fewer and fewer books. Especially children. With all this technology and advancement we have, children’s books are becoming rarity. Children love to play with their iPhones, iTabs, and other devices.
But Mac Barnett, an American writer of children’s book says that should still carry some weight. And he has an idea how to make them more appealing to children. His idea is that children’s books should be surreal, in the same way childhood is surreal.
In his TED talk, Barnett speaks about his style of writing, and how he opens a doorway to wonder for children in his books. We would definitely love to have more writers like him, especially in this age where children just cannot relate to books.
