Raising Little Bookworms

Do you remember when the books you grew up with shaped your childhood? With children reading less, are we seeing fewer readers in the world? We speak to Elina Drucker of Stockholm University on how children's literature has evolved over time and how reading from a young age can be a powerful tool for growth, not just for children, but for the adults raising them too.
