UW-Madison's Kathleen Horning recently appeared on Wisconsin Public Radio’s “Larry Meiller Show” to talk about how the books we read as children can influence people as adults.
Horning is the director of the School of Education's Cooperative Children's Book Center (CCBC)
"I think a book can open up all sorts of worlds to a child. A child from a very young age who is exposed to books starts to find out what their own interests are," said Horning in the WPR interview.
The CCBC is a unique and vital gathering place for books, ideas and expertise in the field of children's and young adult literature. The CCBC is a non-circulating examination, study and research library for Wisconsin school and public librarians, teachers, early childhood care providers, university students and others interested in children's and young adult literature.
