Jessica sent this to me with a note: "It makes me think of what John T. Gatto said about childrens lit authors –something to the effect of –the good ones paint a realistic and complex world, knowing and assuming and expecting that the childs mind can attain to that level of understanding." So helpful. Take notes on this illustration. @Frank Churchill, does this qualify to be an 'occasional' on the shared board? If not, I can keep it here.
