Why Children’s Books Matter at NY Public Library

The New York Public Library has a new exhibit entitled The ABC of it: Why Children’s Books Matter that explores both the importance and potency of children’s literature.  The exhibit draws from books over time and around the world, combining both well-known classics with lesser-known gems.  Lewis Carroll’s famous “Beggar Girl” photograph of Alice Liddell is one of the items on display, and is also part of the slideshow for this NY Times article about the exhibit.
