Famous Video Games Turned Into Children Books

Children’s literature or juvenile literature includes stories, books, and poems that are enjoyed by and targeted primarily towards children. Modern children’s literature is classified in two different ways—by genre or by the intended age of the reader.

One can trace children’s literature back to the stories and songs that adults told their children before publishing existed, as part of the wideroral tradition. Due to the inability to publish stories, it may be difficult to track the development of early children’s literature. Even after widespread printing, many classic tales were originally created for adults and later adapted for a younger audience. On the other hand, a great amount of literature has been aimed specifically at children since the 1400s, often with a moral or religious message embedded in the stories. The late nineteenth and early twentieth century became known as the Golden Age of Children’s Literature with the publication of many books acknowledged today as classics.

A literary genre is a category of literary compositions. Genres may be determined by technique, tone, content, or length. Anderson lists six categories of children’s literature with some significant subgenres:

Picture books, (including concept books that teach the alphabet or counting for example), pattern books, and wordless books.

Traditional literature, including folktales, which convey the legends, customs, superstitions, and beliefs of people in old times. This genre can be further broken down into myths, fables, legends, and fairy tales.

Fiction, including fantasy, realistic fiction, and historical fiction.

Non-fiction.

Biography and autobiography.

Poetry and verse.
