We live in a culture that is all but finished with good books. Visit any bookshop and you will invariably find classic literature stuffed in a small corner going for next to nothing. That is tragic because it denies children what they need to flourish in a society addicted to addiction. It is heartbreaking because it has made my eight-year-old son feel embarrassed reading AA Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh…The truth is, of course, that we can learn more about the human predicament in one page of Winnie-the-Pooh that we ever could by playing Xbox or Wii. ~Mark DooleySource: Moral Matters, 2.10.2013
