It Kind of Makes You Think: Writing Books that Stimulate Thought by Mildred Ames( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Noting that books for children must be just as entertaining, if not more so, than television or film in order to maintain young readers' attention, this paper discusses combining entertainment with didacticism in children's and adolescent literature. The first part of the paper offers a writer's reflections on the experience of writing science fiction/fantasy for youth and on the wish writers have to motivate young people to think while reading. The second part of the paper expands upon this idea and discusses the advantage writers of science fiction and fantasy have in motivating young people to think, using as an example the book, "Is There Life on a Plastic Planet?" The section goes on to suggest that whether readers arrive at "right answers" to questions the books raise is unimportant in comparison with the creative thinking involved in suggesting answers. The final section suggests that ideas that might sound "preachy" in other books attract and fascinate readers when placed in the context of science fiction and fantasy. (Jc)
