The first question that was posited to me as a researcher was, "What is children's literature?" This was followed by "Is it any different from literature for us? What is the purpose of children's literature? Why do we want our kids to read literature, at all? Is it a tool meant to drill rules and structure of grammar (in a context, so to say), or teach moral values? But what about the engagement, the journey that one goes through while reading a text? And more importantly, do we have enough children's literature that truly qualifies as authentic?"
