Religion in Children's Literature

For a most interesting article by Beth Davies-Stofka on religion in the Betsy-Tacy books and in children's literature more generally, click here.

Thank you for sharing the article, Kate. These lines, quoted from a Betsy-Tacy book in Davies-Stofka's article, resonate with me:

'The most important part of religion isn't in any church. It's down in your own heart. Religion is in your thoughts, and in the way you act from day to day, in the way you treat other people. It's honesty, and unselfishness, and kindness. Especially kindness.'
