This method is used to get our attention because most people see fairy tales as simply made up stories for children, but don't understand its meant to go through adults first to then be used on children. In reality, each tale teaches a lesson in regards to consequences if children are overprotected and left vulnerable for the moment they as adults become independent. Adults can still use fairy tales to teach their children but not by reading it to them but instead reading them themselves and breaking them down to use as a guide to raising their children. This way others in our community will also empower children being independent and self-sufficient in a world full of obstacles we as human need to face for our
***IN ITALIC NEEDS TO BE REVISED*** “To reread a children’s book from childhood, perhaps as an escape from the stresses of adulthood, evades both the real now and the real then” (Reader 1, p: 13). People come to children's literature as a relief, and rest from adulthood. And to some people, books that have been read, and enjoyed as a child and revisited as an adult have specific meaning and value. "Children books are nice; they take us back to a golden world, one which we might also want to share it with our children and grandchildren." (Reader 1, p: 13).
The famously know children 's book The Cat in the Hat with simple rhymes and short easy words is used to teach children how to read at an early age. Many may only think of the book as a harmless book that contains the simplest plot. Some may agree due to the story 's simplistic plot and generic theme, with the characters learning lessons from their selfish mistakes. But some may disagree. Some may say that there is a different meaning to the characters personalities because of the different actions and mistakes they make.
Machan used an inverted sentence, “up pops this frog”(5), to show that Hazel doesn’t understand how the frog got there. She is mystified by the frog. On the next line though, she says, “musta come from the sewer”(6). When she realizes this, she is repulsed by it.

Dorothy will not let the Wicked Witch take the slippers. Most people would just give the slippers to the Wicked Witch because they are faced with the fear that she possesses. Often people will let other people take over them weather it is your boss, parents, even a friend. People need to realize like Dorothy, to not allow people to walk over and control oneself. Dorothy never gives the slippers, which shows her maturity and ability to stand up for herself (Nathan).
The Establishment of Gender Norms in The Adventure of Tom Sawyer The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a classic work of children’s literature that has proved its immense staying power. Generations of children grew up reading the entertaining stories of Tom, Huck, and Becky. But as in the case for most works of children’s literature, there is more hidden in the novel than simply entertaining tales of boyhood adventure. Children’s literature gives young children a chance to experience situations that they otherwise might not encounter in real life, and can teach them the skills necessary to handle these situations by allowing them to live vicariously through the characters in the novel. Within the novel, Twain presents the reader with many different
I believe almost every person can recall a time from their childhood in which they were spared the truth of something in an attempt to safeguard them. Trust then becomes the theme of the narrative. It is a lesson every parent wishes to impart to their child, and that is where the bridge between the intended audience and the true audience lies. The simple description and sentence structure Lowry employs, both attracts and makes the child reader comfortable, while the content and themes also echo sentiments and knowledge of both parents and adults alike. It can easily be argued that any book can be for anyone, but I think most people would agree that there is some content that is inappropriate for younger readers, whereas the opposite does not necessarily hold the same.
When we were young, we read children book to fill our spare time. During that time, we just go through the story and seldom think deeply about the messages conveyed. The requirements for a good story are intrigued plots and attractive characters. As long as the story is interesting, it does not matter whether or not there is moral value or lesson. The once upon naïve young us usually have a special liking on love story with a happy ending.
It seemed as though every children’s author hid reality from kids and instead wrote about fairytales and dreams. This set apart Silverstein from everyone else because he “valued creativity above everything else”(“Shel Silverstein Biography”) and because he valued this, he was able to hop right into children’s literature. After writing The Giving Tree, Silverstein kept it coming with books like, Where the Sidewalk Ends and A Light in the Attic. He enjoyed being a “literary trailblazer for presenting grown-up issues to children in a palatable way”(Cannizzaro). Silverstein came to love writing children’s literature because he as still able to express himself in his work, just in a more simplistic way than normal.
URSULA Finally, who would ever forget about Ursula? Her name alone speaks evil. She is one of the wisest villains there is, she basically makes deals like Rumplestiltskin. She did manage to help Ariel reach her dreams of being close to the prince and at the same time giving her legs, however, her being wise didn’t of course let Ariel have her happily ever after that easy. She even managed to trick King Triton himself, making him think it would save Ariel.
The Hub Childline Foundations gave me lots of good experience and good memories even though there are many facing problems come to me sometimes, but that makes me learn to resolve riddle and grow up because in daily life of mine didn’t happen that much. In addition, there is one of children that just started entering normal school with taking care by youth worker and a little bit helping of us by teaching him English, so I and my volunteering friends really expect these children to have great future as
