+ Children's literature covers many types of texts from picture books to biographies. Children's literature empowers children. It motivates thinking, enhances language, and promotes cognitive development. Children not only become involved in the story, but they connect with the characters. If children love to read, their comprehension is higher, their vocabulary is extended, and their fluency becomes more evident.
