I enjoyed this book a lot. I generally like Maria Tatar's writing. Because this is aimed at a general audience, the writing is even more stylish and satisfying. However, because of the intended audience, I also found myself questioning some of the assumptions and assertions she makes. She's a little too willing to generalize about children's essential nature from time to time (though to be fair, she often qualifies particularly sweeping statements). The first chapters about reading scenes and situations were, for me, the most interesting and compelling.
