Children’s Literature, writings designed to appeal to children—either to be read to them or by them—including fiction, poetry, biography, and history. Children's literature also includes riddles, precepts, fables, legends, myths, and folk poems and folktales based on spoken tradition. Works of ancient literature, such as the stories by Greek poet Homer, are often adaptable to children's reading because of their simple narrative forms.
