Children's books and book reviews - reading resource of children's literature for kids, teachers, librarians, parents
John Newbery lived his whole life believing children should have books of their own they enjoyed reading. When John was a small child, he enjoyed reading more than “forking hay.” He carried this love of stories into his adulthood, where he opened a store (in London, in St. Paul’s churchyard) devoted to children’s books. Young readers will learn about some of the first stories published and made available through John’s store. The stories were about giants, ABCs, and a little girl named Goody Two-Shoes.
