Prism of Hope

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

In difficult times, children’s books provide an important source of hope and escape. This paper will discuss how children’s books can provide mirrors and windows on the world for readers: where they can see characters just like them or walk in the shoes of others. This idea is developed by using the prism as a way of exploring the expansion of knowledge through reading.
