Children’s Literature & Classic Fairy Tales

This literature has 10 easy questions about literature for children and teenagers.

There is no single or widely used definition of children’s literature. It generally spans over a wide range of works, including fairy tales, fables, fiction, poetry, or drama intended for and used by children and young people.

A Little Pretty Pocket-Book is often considered the first modern children’s book, since it was the first children’s publication aimed at giving enjoyment to children.

The well-known Brothers Grimm preserved and published the traditional tales told in Germany. Danish author and poet Hans Christian Andersen also gathered fairy tales and created new stories in the fairy tale genre.

Later, Lewis Carroll’s fantasy, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, signaled the change in writing style for children to a more imaginative one.

In 1894, Rudyard Kipling published The Jungle Book. Beatrix Potter published The Tale of Peter Rabbit in 1902.

C. S. Lewis published the first installment of The Chronicles of Narnia series in 1950, and J. R. R. Tolkien, the “father” of modern fantasy literature, wrote The Lord of the Rings a few years later.
