Hidden messages

We’ve been talking about messages in songs in some classes. Here’s a story from the BBC about “hidden” messages in popular children’s stories, some of which are only “hidden” because we were too young to notice them when we first read them, or because we were too caught up in the story to pay attention to any deeper meanings.

 

“The hidden messages in children’s books” (BBC, March 19)

Maybe this will prompt you to go back and re-read some of these children’s classics to see if the messages are really there?

Here’s a quote from the article that I really liked:

This is a very simple story, but simplicity is not the same as a lack of depth.”

Also, the word “greed” came up in two classes yesterday (Friday). You’ll see it in this article, too.
