Society has told its children stories for millennia, but it wasn't until fairly recently that it felt compelled to provide them with books.
BookRiot's Mikkaka Overstreet gives us a quick look back at when young'uns were deemed worthy of printed materials — beginning with rather preachy and dull-sounding works — and then skips forward to the trivia section.
Learn about old children's books and the oldest children's books still in print at BookRiot.
