Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Literature is one of the most important components of a
language arts program in any grade level. It is therefore essential because:
It provides pleasure to both readers as well as
It builds a child’s awareness and experience
through meeting new people and visiting new places
It also provides a language model to those who hear
and read it as well as develop their listening skills.
Through literature, we can evidently notice that other
people have live become more tolerant and understanding. Just like anytime one
takes time to read a novel. By the time he/she is finished, one is able to view
and perceive life differently as other people’s hearts and minds do.
