The Emotional Appeal of Children's Literature
What book from your childhood still comes to mind as a special favorite? Why do you think it still means so much to you?
Adults tend to remember books they heard or read between the ages of seven and ten. They are likely to recall an emotional identification with the characters in these stories. Is that true for you? If you entered into a story so completely that you relived the events through the eyes of a character, you experienced the kind of emotional involvement that we wish for all children. Your own book memories can help you select books that will appeal to students' emotions and make reading an important part of their lives.
