Banned Books Week: September 30- October 6, 2012

Image Credit:Banned Book Week
In celebration of Banned Books Week, The Things You Can Read will be sharing quotes 
from authors of banned works...
John Steinbeck
“And this I believe: that the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world. And this I would fight for: the freedom of the mind to take any direction it wishes, undirected. And this I must fight against: any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual. This is what I am and what I am about.” John Steinbeck, East of Eden

What do you think of the John Steinbeck quote?  Let us know your thoughts by sharing a comment!

Just in case you are unfamiliar with Banned Book Week here is some information from their site:

Banned Books Week is the national book community's annual celebration of the freedom to read. Hundreds of libraries and bookstores around the country draw attention to the problem of censorship by mounting displays of challenged books and hosting a variety of events. The 2012 celebration of Banned Books Week will be held from September 30 through October 6. Banned Books Week was launched in 1982 in response to a sudden surge in the number of challenges to books in schools, bookstores and libraries. More than 11,300 books have been challenged since 1982. For more information on Banned Books Week, click here.

Help celebrate this worthwhile event by reading a banned book. Below you will find a list of the most challenged books in 2011, according to the American Library Association.

As September closes her doors, and the fall season truly gets underway we, here at The Things You Can Read, thought we'd get into the spirit of the upcoming spooky, creepy, eerie month of October  with a post to welcome this month of Tricks or Treats or both.  And, what better book to post about then the quintessential scary classic, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.

What made us think of Frankenstein over all the other scary classics out there?  As luck would have it, it just so happens that Mary Shelley's super scary classic is in the news.  What has brought Frankenstein into the spotlight?  All the attention has to do with the recent discovery of Lord Byron's presentation copy of Frankenstein by Mary Shelley.  In a recent post Open Culture reminded its readers of the genesis of Frankenstein:

"The story behind the writing of Frankenstein is famous. In 1816, Mary Shelley and Percy Bysshe Shelley, summering near Lake Geneva in Switzerland, were challenged by Lord Byron to take part in a competition to write a frightening tale. Mary, only 18 years old, later had a waking dream of sorts where she imagined the premise of her book"

To learn more about this remarkable discovery view the video below:

If you are looking for a copy of Frankenstein, checkout Open Culture's Free ebooks and Free Audio Books.  If you are an old movie buff, like we are, Open Culture has links to the first film adaptation of Shelley's famous novel from 1910, or try the 1931 version.

Celebrate 110 years Since the Publication of Beatrix Potter's Classic Tale

Image Credit: Free Lake District Walks
Did you know that 2012 is the 110th anniversary since the first publication of Beatrix Potter's classic tale of Peter Rabbit?  Well, it is, and to celebrate an anniversary edition of The Tale of Peter Rabbit is available.  The 110th Anniversary Edition of The Tale of Peter Rabbit honors the classic tale, which according to Goodreads is, "the quintessential cautionary tale..."  

Summary from Goodreads:
Peter Rabbit warns naughty children about the grave consequences of misbehaving. When Mrs. Rabbit beseeches her four furry children not to go into Mr. McGregor's garden, the impish Peter naturally takes this as an open invitation to create mischief. He quickly gets in over his head, when he is spotted by farmer McGregor himself. Any child with a spark of sass will find Peter's adventures remarkably familiar. And they'll see in Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail that bane of their existence: the "good" sibling who always does the right thing. One earns bread and milk and blackberries for supper, while the obstinate folly of the other warrants medicine and an early bedtime. 

If you are a Beatrix Potter fan you are not alone, Emma Thompson, the academy award winning British actress is as well, and she has taken her appreciation of the Beatrix Potter book to a whole new level.  In an article published in Publisher's Weekly the actress said, “I’ve always loved Beatrix Potter, as a child and then as a mother and all the years in-between as well...When Mr. Rabbit invited me to write a further tale, I was more honored than I can say. I hope I don’t let him or his extraordinary creator down.”  Ms. Thompson would have made Beatrix Potter proud with the actress's new story starring the beloved bunny, which you can find in bookstores starting September 23, 2012.  Ms. Thompson's book is entitled, The Further Tales of Peter Rabbit, and according to an article in The Guardian the actress stated, "It's lovely when my childhood favourite characters also become my daughter's."

If this has made you curious here is the Goodreads summary of the new book:
Emma Thompson celebrates 110 years of Peter Rabbit by giving us a brand-new tale 
Celebrate 110 years of Peter Rabbit with a new, original tale written by Oscar-winning actress and screenwriter Emma Thompson and based on the original tales by Beatrix Potter. In this story, Peter's adventures take him beyond the boundaries of Mr. McGregor's garden and all the way to Scotland With 72 pages of beautiful text and illustrations, this hardcover picture book, which includes an audio CD of the story narrated by the author, is sure to become a classic--and a collector's item
The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit

We'd love to hear your thoughts on the classic tale or the new addition by Emma Thompson.  To learn  more about this new book see what Publisher's Weekly had to say about Emma Thompson's new tale.  Also take a look at the Peter Rabbit site.

Happy Anniversary Beatrix Potter!

Eleven Classic Kids Books from the '60s

If you long for the books of your youth, and your youth happened to be in the 1960s, BuzzFeed  has a list for you.  The staff over at Buzzfeed decided to highlight books that you would have found on the shelves of your fifth grade classroom library. back in the day.  So calling all children of the 60s...take a peek at the Buzzfeed post "Eleven Classic Kids Books from the '60s" by BuzzFeed Staff Writer, Molly Horan.  Here are the top three on their list...just to whet your appetite.

Island of the Blue Dolphin by Scott O'Dell (1960)
From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L.Konigsburg (1967)
A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L'Engle (1962)

Just to put things in perspective here is a blurb from The American Cultural History about what was happening in the book world in the 1960s:
Literature also reflected what was happening in the political arenas and social issues of America in the sixties. A book which described some of the turmoil of race relations as they affected people in America, Harper Lee's Pulitzer prize winning novel ToKill a Mockingbird is a story about a small southern town and social distinctions between races. Writing about race and gender, women of color like Gwendolyn Brooks, Maya Angelou and Margaret Walker Alexander helped create new insights on feminism as it developed in America. Sylvia Plath (The Bell Jar), and Mary McCarthy (The Group) spoke of women in roles outside those of the happy wife and mother of the fifties. Women like Betty Friedan, author of The Feminine Mystique , and Gloria Steinem , led the way for many women. Disillusionment with the system was the theme of books like Catch-22 and One Flew Over the Cuckoo'sNest.

Marshall McLuhan, author of books on communications and the scope of the "global village," popularized his belief that mass communications were a driving force in the development of modern society in works like The Gutenberg Galaxy and Understanding Media . The Peter Principle, by Laurence Peter, came to epitomize incompetence. In 1963, Maurice Sendak published Where the Wild Things Are, about a boy named Max who must face some of his childhood fears. This controversial book with its illustrations, also by Sendak, won the Caldecott Medal in 1964 and has become a classic in children's literature.

Checkout BuzzFeed for the rest of the books on their list.  Let us know, here at The Things You Can Read, what you think of the list.  Better yet, share with us the book you fondly remember on the shelf of your fifth grade classroom.

Happy Reading!

Annotated Edition Classics-Emma: An Annotated Edition by Jane Austen; Bharat Tandon, editor

Jane Austen
Image Credit: Goodreads
We, here at The Things You Can Read, have made a serious commitment to read the Classics (Book Blogger Appreciation Week post), and with this in mind, we noted that on September 17, 2012 a new annotated edition of Emma by Jane Austen has been released.  We love Jane Austen and we encourage anyone out there who is a Jane Austen fan or a Jane Austen Wanna-be fan to check this one out.

Don't forget to check out our Classics Challenge Page, which lists all the classics we plan to read between September 14, 2012 and September 14, 2017.

Summary from Goodreads:

Emma: An Annotated Edition by Jane Austen; Bharat Tandon, editor

Emma: An Annotated Edition

Emma: An Annotated Edition

Emma, perhaps the most technically accomplished of all of Austen’s novels, is also, after Pride and Prejudice, her most popular one. Its numerous film and television adaptations testify to the world’s enduring affection for the headstrong, often misguided Emma Woodhouse and her many romantic schemes. Like the previous volumes in Harvard’s celebrated annotated Austen series, Emma: An Annotated Edition is a beautiful and illuminating gift edition that will be treasured by readers.

Stimulating and helpful annotations appear in the book’s margins, offering information, definitions, and commentary. In his Introduction, Bharat Tandon suggests several ways to approach the novel, enabling a larger appreciation of its central concerns and accomplishments. Appearing throughout the book are many illustrations, often in color, which help the reader to better picture the Regency-era world that serves as the stage for Emma’s matchmaking adventures.

Whether explaining the intricacies of early nineteenth-century dinner etiquette or speculating on Highbury’s deliberately imprecise geographical location, Tandon serves as a delightful and entertaining guide. For those coming to the novel for the first time or those returning to it, Emma: An Annotated Edition offers a valuable portal to Austen’s world.

Blending Something Old with Something New

Blending Something Old with Something New

The Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop recently published some very interesting findings.  Researchers found that, roughly 90% of iPad owners read, "mostly print books and some e-books" with their children during shared reading time, while about 8% read both formats equally with their children, and only about 3% read "mostly or exclusively" e-books."  Over two thirds of the responding parents preferred reading print books with their children, "with more than 50% of their children agreeing."  Only slightly less than 10% of parents or children preferred their shared reading time to totally consist of e-books.  Wow!

 If you are interested in delving further into this study, you can read all the nitty gritty details at Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop.  How do you feel about this?  Do you prefer reading a printed book or an e-book to your child?  We'd love to hear your thoughts on this very interesting research.  As they said over at the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop, "When it comes to reading we need to effectively blend 'something old with something new.'"

Well, this study reminds us, here at The Things You Can Read, of what Dr. Seuss said:

And ultimately it really doesn't matter if it is an e-book or a print book as long as you read to your child, but we, here at The Things You Can Read, have to admit we are in the 100% who read only print books to their children.

Image Credit: Flavorwire
We, here at The Things You Can Read, have made a serious committment to read the Classics.  On September 14, we posted the following, with regard to the close of Book Blogger Appreciation Week, "The thing that I will take into the future is the Classics Club, which I've recently joined.

Some writers speak to generations after generations, according to Flavorwireone of the most relevant writers of the 19th century is Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein. Flavorwire reports that, "she has some serious staying power...her work is more relevant now than ever."  Others who made their list include:  Herman Melville, Henry David Thoreau, Edgar Allan Poe, Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, John Keats, and The Brothers Grimm.  For more details check out Flavorwire for the full low down as to why each of these authors has staying power.  As always, let us know, here at The Things You Can Read,  what you think!  Hey, maybe even consider joining the Classics Challenge.

Me, Frida

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Me, Frida by Amy Novesky
Illustrated by David Diaz
Abrahms, 2010. 32 pgs.
Reading Level: ages 4-8

Me, Frida is a gorgeous lushous visual treat with a story that matches the quality of the illustrations. I would liken the experience of reading this book to falling into one of Frida Kahlo's paintings. However, the illustrator, David Diaz, does not simply copy Frida's style of artistic expression, but adds his own personal touches to that of the famous artist, thereby, creating something quite unique. The colors are vivid, warm, and inviting. My daughter's hands touched every page as we read this award winning book.  It is no wonder that Me, Frida won the Pura Belpre Illustrator Honor Book Award in 2011.

Me, Frida focuses on Frida's life as the new bride of Diego Rivera, the famous muralist and painter. Specifically, the setting is the newlyweds time in San Francisco in 1931 when Diego Rivera received his commission to paint his renowned murals on the government buildings of the city. During this time Frida, also an artist, begins to find her artistic voice, while her more established husband is busy creating his own art. When the couple is together Frida is often neglected and overlooked. Parties are given in her husband's honor, but no one notices the eclectic Frida.

Left to her own devices, Frida travels the streets of San Francisco gaining confidence in herself. With this new found confidence, she unlocks her own personal artistic style. Instead of copying the style of her husband, Diego Rivera, Frida paints in an intimate and folkloric style, which hearkens back to her native Mexican culture. The first painting to explore this style is Frida and Diego (Wedding Portrait) painted in 1931 during her stay in San Francisco. The painting now resides in the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco, California. It's the painting she entered in her first show. Frida goes on to paint many more self-portraits when asked about this the painter stated, "I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best."  Me, Frida shares all this biographical information about this wonderful female painter without sounding stiff and stilted. 

Me, Frida by Amy Novesky and accompanying illustrations by David Diaz is an excellent introduction to this influential painter.
