By the Book: Children’s Books Today

Children’s books are often many a reader’s first introduction to reading, but it is also a genre that is constantly changing. What are some of the current trends and changes happening in children’s literature, and is all this talk of diverse books actually making a difference? We speak with two experts on children’s books, Dr Sharifah Osman and Daphne Lee, and wrap up the discussion by sharing our earliest memories of reading.
