Children’s Books On Tour!
This week we’re featuring The Grolier Club’s “One Hundred Books Famous in Children’s Literature.” Get a peek at historic children’s books while Rocco Staino interviews the exhibit’s curator, Chris Loker!
This exhibition presents 100 famous children’s books, printed in the last 400 years, from 1600 to 2000. Some of the beloved books on display in the exhibition are Robinson Crusoe, Grimm’s Fairy Tales, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Tom Sawyer, Treasure Island, Peter Rabbit, The Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan, Winnie-the-Pooh, Charlotte’s Web, The Cat in the Hat, Where the Wild Things Are, and Harry Potter. These classics and others ~ many famous today, some only in their time ~ will bring smiles of enjoyment to adults and children alike.
