How Books Have Changed in the Past Century

For years Jenny Phillips, the founder of The Good and the Beautiful, has deeply analyzed books and how they have changed over the past 100-150 years. In this video, Jenny gives her fascinating findings and explains how the changes in books are in turn changing our children. The kind of books that developed the noble character of people like Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Edison are not the kind of books you now see on the best-selling children’s book lists today.

Are popular books today actually harming academics? Are your children really gaining benefits from the books they are reading? All parents and teachers need to watch this video!
