Tell me, what children’s books – in your humble opinion – still need to be written? What topics still need to be covered or need to be covered again?
Here are my thoughts:
- Street smarts
- Internet safety
- Bullies: walk away
- Why you stink (smell bad) – boys will love it 😉
Of course, the best children’s books are simple, entertaining, NOT condescending, and NOT frightening if they are covering those difficult topics.
The best example I know of a children’s book handling a tough topic well is the Berenstain Bears’ “Learn About Strangers”. Mama Bear, you always know just what to say!
