Literary Birthday - 23 May
Happy Birthday, Margaret Wise Brown, born 23 May 1910, died 13 November 1952
Quotes
In this modern world where activity is stressed almost to the point of mania, quietness as a childhood need is too often overlooked. Yet a child’s need for quietness is the same today as it has always been—it may even be greater—for quietness is an essential part of all awareness. In quiet times and sleepy times a child can dwell in thoughts of his own, and in songs and stories of his own.
I don’t think I’m essentially interested in children’s books. I’m interested in writing, and in pictures. I’m interested in people and in children because they are people.
Goodnight stars, goodnight air, goodnight noises everywhere.
Brown was a prolific American author of children’s literature, including the books Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny.
