using kids books to tackle ageism

I’m not an Elmer’s-glue-and-glitter grandmother, but I’ll read to my grandchildren till my voice gives out. Lindsey McDivitt knows there are lots of people out there like me, and that children’s books are a great way to bridge generations and combat ageism in the process. We met online and then had the pleasure of meeting in person in Ann Arbor when I was on the Second Wind Tour last week.  Here’s an entertaining post from McDivitt’s blog, A is for Aging, B is for Books, about the Second Wind event, myth-busting, and why children’s books need to incorporate not just different races and cultures but different ages as well.
