Hence, American children’s literature was originated with no more purpose for children, than a business plan sample and was initially presented as a scholastic archive of oral tales and legends. But once the stories were collected, they gradually came into the collectors’ field of vision as highly valuable for children’s reading due to a lot of fascinating, appealing and easily accessible to children features, namely: stock characters, concentrated action, elements of ultimate fantasy, patterned language and simple themes, such as the struggle between evil and good or superiority of the weak and clever over the strong.
