What was that Children's BookWho was that kid's book?
A lion, a witch and a wardrobe chose the children's book that most grown-ups want to have.
CS Lewis' children's classics The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe have been chosen as the children's book that the nation's adult readers want to most. According to the poll, two third of adult people are in agreement that pre-sleeping is helpful for them. It also showed that there are certain kinds of fictions that the British can relax better than others, and almost one in five would grasp a fancy if they had to be asleep.
Three-out of five wanted to re-visit or re-read a book they had been enjoying since they were kids, and one in ten believes that children's literature best calms their minds before going to sleep. Over half of the world' s population feels happy when they hear a tale from their early years. TOPIC 30 - CHILDREN'S LITERATURE THAT ADULTS WANT TO RE-READ:

" Present attendees comprise independant bookshops (269), open access bookshops (348) and schools/school bookshops (167), with the offer rounded off by museum, army base, collegiate bookshops and comics shops. There is an animated weekly calendar which is constantly up-dated. The most important addition to the 2018 programme is a large number of Spotlight shows, among them more than 40 writers and graphic designers who are on the road this coming weeks.
At every meeting, a specific "It's Children's Book Week" advertisement is announced and the writers are signing their latest work. This year, a collaborative initiative between First Book and CBC/Every Child a Reader to allocate teacher support and encourage the vote at schools for the eleventh yearly Children and Teen Choice Book Awards, which will be held until 6 May, the last date of Book Week.
