Generally, I have noticed that most of the books revolve around characters’ discovery of themselves and their identity for both children novels and adult literature. For example, books like “Lord of the Faces,” “The Truman Show,” “When Breathe Becomes Air,” “A Wrinkle in Time” and “Room” to illustrate a few. Some books’ central messages are also contained in the lessons of life where it imparts positive messages such as no isolation, being inclusive, and love, mainly, the “feel-good” novels. Another point to a protagonist who feels different from others and struggled to conform to expectations from society, whether to be rebels or try to fit in, in the face of vast opposition from their community.

They tried several ways and finally thought of making the taller giraffes bend down and eventually got Jerry’s face in the photo. Such a simple plot could mean nothing to a child but it speaks about being encompassing, persistence, and seeing things from another approach. Thus, it requires more thinking beneath the surface for children to understand the message the book is conveying. Besides, I think this approach does the opposite by revealing the nasty realm too early to children. While this may be true, the value of exposing them early to the reality gives them a contact point to hear different stories and from someone else’s life. Hence, showing the diversity and this could make children become more open-minded. In adult novels, the style was direct through its expression. In particular, displaying the hypocrisy, conflicts, and struggles among the
