Darrel Marco shares his insights on the topic, Children as Beings, in my workshop last month. The workshop is a children's story book writing for aspiring writers of children's stories.
He presented studies discussing the child as being in children's literature and questions, "where is the child in the story?" This gave me and the participants a lot to think about particularly on the didacticism that exist in Philippine Children's Literature. Now I am thinking of looking at titles of books for children that honor the child as a person.
Darrel is in Denmark on graduate studies under the Erasmus+ International Master in Children Litertaure, Media and Culture.
