Description
Join award-winning author Mitali Perkins as she explores the promise of seven timeless children's novels for adults living in uncertain times. Through works by Louisa May Alcott, C. S. Lewis, L. M. Montgomery, Frances Hodgson Burnett, and other literary uncles and aunts, Perkins unpacks wisdom to help us thrive.
Description
The stories we read as children shape us for the rest of our lives-- but it's never too late to discover that transformative spark of hope that children's classics can ignite within us. Perkins invites us to explore the promise of seven timeless children's novels, and shows how they provide mirrors to our innermost selves, and open windows to other world. She shows that reading (or re-reading) these books as adults can help us build virtue, unmask our vices, and restore our hope. -- Adapted from jacket
