Realistic fiction tells
the story of a person or animal in a real life setting. All characters act in a
way that is true to life; there is no magic or extraordinary happenings.
It’s hard to believe
that the same person who wrote “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” could write charming
children’s poetry, but Robert Louis Stevenson did just that. His poems for
children show a deep insight into childhood, from being sick in bed to swinging
high on a swing. This reading set includes some of his most beloved poems.
