Why I Read Children’s Books

Happy Thursday!

As you can see by the title this post is all about why I read children’s books, and the simple answer is because I want to. But I will go into detail why all of a sudden I have started reading more.

Just like most avid book readers I started reading super young, like 6 or 7. I always enjoyed reading and my mom always encouraged me to read whatever I wanted, that’s probably why I read The Shining at 12. I have never been ashamed of what I read, until about 3 years ago when I read a children’s picture book and recorded on Goodreads and someone made a comment about I was too old and didn’t have kids to be reviewing a kids book. That actually really upset me and I didn’t list any children books I was reading for a long time. I know you are thinking why would you ever let one person change what you were reading? and I don’t really have an answer for you. I will say it was about the time I started this blog and I wanted everyone to like me and I felt pressured but I shouldn’t have let one person take that enjoyment away.

So here we are now, over my fear of bully goodreaders and finally reading whatever I want and putting it on Goodreads. I love all books, if you follow me on Goodreads you would see that. Every month I read novels, graphic novels, manga, picture books, etc. and I honestly enjoy it all. I really do love children’s picture books and I think they are such beautiful little art work. I recommend picking up at least one children’s book this year, step outside you comfort zone and read something new.

  1. Children’s books are awesome. They usually many more colorful pictures and rhymes than your average book. 😺

  2. I agree 100%! I’m glad I’m not the only one!
