Children’s Literature at the DNC
If there’s one thing you can say about children’s literature people, they will notice when children’s books are mentioned in a national stage.
Last night at the Democratic National Convention, Chelsea Clinton kept mentioning children’s books in her speech.
The children’s literature people? We took notice:
For those keeping track: @ChelseaClinton shouted out three children's books and her public library in her speech.
