An acquaintance with and an understanding of literary characters is one of the first ways a young child has of making sense of what it is to be human. We all come to know more clearly who and what we are while reaching out, imaginatively, for what we might become. The events of story are a means of exploration of the world, helping a child to confirm, to illuminate, and to extend her own life experiences, in ways that give her power over them.
Research has concluded that children's story books not only provide great pleasure to readers, but they can also play a significant role in children's academic, social, and literacy success.
Here's How It All Got Started
Literature for children probably started in the 17th century before which, it is generally believed that books were written for adults mainly. Other than that, due to the high cost, printed works were only available for purchase by the upper classes. Books written for children also made its way to appreciation by an adult audience as they were selected by the parents or the teachers, and was often read aloud to the young children.
What is Children's Fiction?
Literature for children usually comprises books that are intentionally written for children to read. Some of these works get popular among adults also because the lessons taught in them are sometimes targeted towards children and adults both.
