    gazed at the book catalog to create a wishlist of books. I wanted every single book, the scary books, funny books, even comics. The book fair is what blossomed my love for books and reading.

  • Realistic Fiction In Sharon M. Draper's Out Of My Mind

    Like Huck states in book, “Children’s books have always reflected the general social and human values of a society, so it is not surprising that they are also scrutinized for implied attitudes or biases of that society” (Huck, p.205), no one can promise that there are no bias or stereotyping in contemporary realistic fictions. So children without the independent thinking skills are easy to be guided tendentiously. However children…

  • Character Analysis Of Dr. Seuss Cat In The Hat

    The first book I decided to choose was Dr. Seuss’ Cat in the Hat. When reading or studying children’s literature any one of Dr. Seuss’ books are a must read.

  • Bruno Bettelheim's The Struggle For Meaning

    edified due to fairy tales. Without fairy tales, children are robbed of what they could gain from literature.

This is done by letting children not choose between good and evil, but by who they wish to unconsciously become in a given fairy tale. Sheltering children from life’s grave…

  • Morality In Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin In The Sun

    Henry Ford once said, ”Money doesn’t change men, it merely unmasks them.” This is derived from the idea that money has the ability to alter a life, however, it cannot change a person. It contains the potential of revealing someone’s true colors by transforming their former situation. Whether what is brought to light is pleasant or horrendous depends on their demeanor. Whereas one person may display integrity, another may be like Walter and have traits such as greed and selfishness become…
