Children’s Books Expert Blows the Lid off School Libraries

Watch this enlightening interview with Deborah DeGroff, a children’s books expert. She says that kids’ literature has not just been dumbed down – it is now being used to indoctrinate the next generation.

Deborah DeGroff became interested in the subject of children’s books when her oldest child began to read. While perusing the then-current literature of the eighties, she noted the qualitative difference between those books and the books she had read as a child.

Upon more investigation, her curiosity shifted to concern. Thus began a lifetime of research and a resounding cry for parents to look inside their children’s books.

Watch Deborah DeGroff’s interview with Dr Jennifer Roback Morse below:

From Dumbing Down to Indoctrination

“I never wanted to write a book,” Debbie explains. She said she just wanted to “make parents aware of what’s inside these books and encourage them to begin reading their own children’s books. I wanted to teach them what to look for as they read.”

The end result of Deborah’s research and concern is the book, Between The Covers: What’s Inside A Children’s Book. In the book, she connects the “dumbing down” of school books to a simultaneous shift from moral instruction to amoral, and ultimately to today’s immoral indoctrination of our children.

“Dr Judith Reisman emphatically let me know that I was going to die with that knowledge in my head and that I needed to write a book,” Deborah explains. “You can be assured that I embarked on this journey kicking and screaming.”
