more where these came from

Googlereader freaked out on me and gave me all sorts of older posts from some great blogs today. So I found this at Brooklyn Arden: a collection of quotations about writing for kids. She posted it in September, 2005, but there are still many worth recalling:

"I believe that kids as well as adults are entitled to books of no socially redeeming value." – R. L. Stine
“Sure, it’s simple, writing for kids. Just as simple as bringing them up.” — Ursula K. Le Guin
