Breaking taboos: what's off-limit in children's books?

A bold discussion around taboos and what topics, if any, should be off-limits in children’s books. The Australian Children’s Laureate is joined by La Trobe’s Professor Jo Lampert and Dr Juliet O’Conor from State Library Victoria to explore whether the literary world is keeping pace with social change and ask: are there taboo topics in children's reading?
