Reading Children’s and Young Adult Literature as an Adult

Life for adults is often busy and complicated, and finding the time and energy to read isn't easy. Consider revisiting the books, images, and tales from your childhood. Reading children's and young adult literature as an adult, whether the stories are old familiars or new, can refresh your imagination, while evoking a sense of nostalgia and the undefinable comfort that comes from immersing oneself in a good story.
