In 1690, the dour New England Primer, thought to be the first American children's book, was published in Boston. Offering children gems of advice such as "strive to learn" and "be not a dunce", it was no fun at all. So how did we get from there to "let the wild rumpus start"? And now that we're living in a golden age of children's literature, what can adults get out of reading Where the Wild Things Are and Goodnight Moon or Charlotte's Web and Little House on the Prairie?
