ABSTRACT
The author emphasizes on the function of literature in shaping a nation. He cites the situation in the Southern region of the U.S., wherein a delegate at a secession convention in Georgia in 1861 argued that no nation would succeed without its literature and that no literature would exist without the habit of reading. He suggests that children's books would play a crucial role in developing citizens to become great readers that in turn, would create a nation's literature.
