Book Genres for Kids – Books for younger readers are classified in two different ways: book genre and/or the intended age of the reader. Children’s Literature began with the oral tradition of storytelling and songs. Most “classic” children’s tales were originally stories for adults that were later adapted for a younger audience. Children’s literature often contains a moral or religious message told in a way that children can understand and embrace in a fun and comfortable way.
