Roethke states “He loops in crazy figures half the night” (5). One may be asking themselves how this pertains to doubt. When someone doubts another they in many cases they consider them silly, foolish, or in some cases stupid.
For example, during this part of the story the children represents the Id, and “The id wants whatever feels good at the time.”(NCTE). The reader can now see why the children allowed the Cat into their house, which was to have fun a given moment. In addition to that the children soon became the ego of the story. It says the ego “is represented by a person, with a devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other” (NCTE). Throughout the rest of the story, the kids played that role.
Children and the media are a growing concern in our society. Young children are being largely exposed to various forms of media, including television shows, movies, music lyrics, and the internet. The purpose of this paper is to focus on the effects media forms can have on children through the use of Gerbner’s cultivation theory.

The narrator gets gouth because of a cat being inside a wall. In The Cask of Amontillado the foreshadowing can been seen in very start when Montresor is talking to a person and telling about his killing and getting away with if it.
The Cat in the Hat, by Dr. Seuss, is more than a simplistic children’s story. It is a representation of Dr. Sigmund Freud’s personality spectrum that represents the theme of learning to control one’s self, even when having fun. Perhaps, it seems true that the illustrations within The Cat in the Hat make it appeal to children. It may also be true that the pictures add to the plot and characterization of Sally, the narrator, the Fish and the Cat. For example, on page 19 there is a picture of the Cat balancing things such as the Fish, a rake, milk, books, and a cake, all while balancing on a ball.
Talking animals have become commonplace in the realm of children's literature. Fictional talking animals often are anthropomorphic, possessing human-like qualities but appearing as a creature. Animals are projected with the talking ability in order to make them more relatable to human readers and also to apply puns and metaphors through their talking, and to entertain children.

Television provides access to dedicated educational information through which can stimulate active learning in a child and can help them pick up new forms of arts. TV shows such as Sesame street provided educational content to children in ways that are appealing to children and they are able to learn quickly because of the flashy/colorful imaging that captures their attention. Another positive aspect of television viewership by children is that they can become aware of the harmful effects of substances with advertisement that provide information about Alcohol Abuse and Drug
The children will also learn how Aboriginal people describe animals through movement. Furthermore, children will be able to deconstruct-reconstruct the different types of movement themselves as they learn about their own abilities (DEEWR, 2010) for example, the different movements Kangaroo’s make and in the way Aboriginal people imitate the movement in the placement of their hands and body as they move to the music.

Anthony Browne’s Willy The Wimp series targets a range of topics such as bullying, self-confidence, stereotypes and more, through both the storyline and exciting illustrations. Not only do these texts provide an aesthetic experience, but also they build and develop a child’s morality and ethics. Jungle Drums, written by Graeme Base is another quality piece of literature that focuses on inner beauty, and teaches children to love and accept themselves for who they are.

The visual representations of children books, such as images, pictures, cartoons, movies for television or the big screen, animated cartoons and anything else there might be out there are but a single representation of the story and its characters. Obviously, these visual representations may be brilliant and they are very helpful, as what would a children's book be without its pictures, especially those adaptations for very young ages?
