for writers and readers….
Children love all things big, and not just dinosaurs. They can cope with complicated words they’ve never seen before: that’s what they’ve been doing non-stop since they were born. They can cope with difficult, dark, touchy topics: they’re always asking their parents about them. They can cope with humour: they often wish adults had more of it. Don’t give them small, cosy, mundane stories.
