As most of you know, I am an adult (if you didn’t know that, Hi! I’m Katie and I’m 25).
As most of you also know, I have many younger siblings (if you didn’t know that, I have 7 younger siblings, 6 girls and 1 boy).
I think having so many younger siblings is part of what has kept me loving things made for kids. Not the entire reason, but definitely part of it.
I don’t think I would play Minecraft, love Disney movies, or watch as many children’s tv shows.
I would probably still keep reading picture books and middle grade, though.
I said a long time ago that there were only a handful of tv shows I would still watch when I moved out and didn’t have siblings that watched them. These shows are Arthur (because it came out when I was little and remains mostly still good) and My Little Pony (because I’m a Pegasister). There was one or two other shows but they don’t come on anymore.
Where am I going with all this?
- It is perfectly okay to love stuff made for kids, even as an adult. Kids are just the target audience.
- If you write for children, it’s actually kind of important to read and watch stuff written for children.
- I really just wrote all this so I could say THERE’S A TRAILER FOR THE LEGO NINJAGO MOVIE I’M SOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!
