A podcast about books from the Larissa Gerstel Critical Literacy Collection at American University in Washington DC.
Your review of Calviin and Hobbes is extremely interesting. I think the point that you (the older sister) and the your brother can view the same text and derive different meanings is extremely important. It explains the usefulness of guided reading between the adult and the child reader. While the child can learn and laugh through Calvin's hijinks, the adult is given the same joy of explaining ironies of Calvin and Hobbes's philosophically charged conversations.
