My child knows about superheroes, but doesn’t know about saints. I know some European saints, but would be hardpressed to name any European heroes other than Beowulf. Or Indian gods other than Krishna.
How limited our cultural understanding is, when we cannot name the saints or heroes or even the gods of another culture. We may think that National Geographic tells us about foreign lands, but I think its stories would tell us more.
I think it’s time to look for some new bedtime storybooks.
