Young Readers

I was in Walmart earlier today, and checked out the magazine rack, as is my habit. On a whim, I walked around the corner and looked at the “Young Readers” section, four racks wide, just to see what they have over there.

Of the four racks, three and part of the fourth were completely filled with books on vampires and the occult. Granted, they probably loaded up on this stuff in advance of Halloween, but still I find this disturbing. The closest thing I saw to true children’s books was a single book about Miley Cyrus.

If you care about your children, monitor what they read, watch on TV, or peruse on the internet. They are not learning good things by reading what I saw on the shelves today.
