Abstract

This article investigates the possible role of childrens literature in theeducation of adult learners of English. This three-year study on adult learners of English from the Peoples Republic of China shows that childrens literature can be effective in teaching linguistic skills such as pronunciation practice and improving language acquisition. Using and reading childrensliterature is an initial step to developing literary competence, critical thinking, increasing knowledge, and multicultural understanding as well as exposing learners from developing countries to effective innovative educational methodology. Despite the limitations of childrens literatureidentification with child protagonistsit paves the way to developing literacy in adult literature.
