Children's Literature Discussion - Children's Literature Discussion "The history that makes us wish fairy tales did happen, that life were like a children's book and we all lived happily ever after, is not an easy history to read or write. If we persist in thinking that children need hope and happy endings then the stories we give them about the Holocaust will be shaped by those expectations… For there are those who would tell us yet another fairy tale, one in which the mass murder of millions of people did not happen I know that it did, and I know that we need to find ways to tell children." (Kertzer, 1999, p.253) Children's literature continues to inspire both children and adults, and more recently while doing so, has...   [tags: Children Child Literature Essays History]

Give Children the Vote? I Vote No - Give Children the Vote. “What I suggest is that children be allowed to grow into their own right to vote at whatever rate suits them individually,” argues Vita Wallace as her major claim in the essay “Give children the vote” (1998, p.147). This is a thoughtful argument by Wallace, but I disagree with it. In this essay, Wallace presents her opinion, but the major claim could also be presented as a fact, judgment, or policy (McFadden, 2003). Throughout the essay, I see the interesting approach Wallace takes to try convince the audience....   [tags: Essay Critique Children Voting Rights Essays]
