Abstract

Guiding children into the world of quality literature is one of the greatest gifts parents and teachers can give to their children. Enjoyment of a piece is the first purpose of literature. Literature develops imagination, offers vicarious experiences, and develops insight into human behavior. Through quality literature, one can respond to the universality of human conflict. Literature can constitute a curricular base as it provides models of language and exposure to the meanings provided by the various genres and offers natural connections between the comprehension/composition processes (Huck, Hepler, & Hickman, 1987).
