The teachers should try to have them read something that still teaches them, but yet they find it interesting and they can relate to. Students opinion on classic literature is surprisingly strong and for the literature. Classic literature is one of the most looked past things. It’s not given enough credit for what it does for us. It helps us to travel the world in one night, teach us to slay the dragon in a matter of hours, and letting us learn about the past.
Which allows readers to find comfort inside something they would never think of finding comfort in. Literature is more important than other sources of entertainment such as movies, television, and video games because it allows for the reader to manipulate the text to make it relate to their day to day life which in the end lets them go into a fake reality leaving behind depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts that may be present in their real lives. Reading is becoming less important among teens lives as other forms of entertainment are drawing their attention away. Movies along with television shows don’t offer much option for the reader to change it in a way that fits them. They have set characters that look and talk a certain way.
The reason why students should read more challenging novels are because they learn new things, and they could also learn how to act in a certain situation based on the type of challenging story they read. Many people also feel that this book is irrelevant to student’s lives. However, kids should learn what life would be like for kids at their age in a different time period. Like what was stated before, in a history class, when we learn about the history, we learn about the straight facts, not as much of the personal lives of people living in that time. Since the novel is showing the personal recollections of one boy in the time period, students can identify the similarities between the two lessons.
I bet there are a lot of books that at least gave someone advise or at least made someone tell themselves “Huh that is true.” Fiction books can teach anyone valuable lessons. For example,if someone is going through a death in a family,they could read fiction so they could forget about the pain their going through,and read fiction so it can bring you to your own imaginary world. Kids should read fiction because fiction is fake sometimes,but sometimes it could be real,like realistic fiction. Mostly people read realistic fiction because you could actually learn something. Another example is in the book “The boy and striped pajamas” it didn’t actually happen but it’s an example that something like this maybe happened.
Children’s literature is the body of written works and accompanying illustrations produced inorder to entertain and instruct young people.The fundamental goal of children’s literature is to instruct and entertain. It covers various diverse themes such as mystery, fantasy and war. Some themes are discernible to the young reader, whereas some are more likely to be understood by an adult reader.

***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).
For example, it is imperative that literature and the appetite for reading are presented to people from a young age. This way, reading will help the children in their growing process and later on in their lives they will certainly have an affinity with books. Yet, if this is the case one must also have in attention that there must be an healthy balance between dealing with the reality and fictional worlds because even though literature is a great escape from reality if one stops being able to distinguish it from what is fictional, it will have negative
