Do as I do…

“It’s not what you teach your babies that counts, it is how you are with them.  As Joseph Chilton Pearce says, ‘We tell children how to be and they keep mirroring back what we are’.” (p.67)

About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
