This post got me thinking about one of my all time favourite books Little Black Sambo.
I have very fond memories of it being read to me at kindergarten. Likewise, I read it each year to my kindergarten group, and I also read it to my own children.
I love the richness of the language and the grandness of the adventure. I hate the thought of "sanitising" stories for children. If they don't know what bazaar or crimson mean - then tell them! visit here for the entire story, with pictures for a little trip down memory lane.
