ABSTRACT
The article presents the authors views on the cognitive processes used while reading children's and young adult literature and on the conceptualization of literature across various domains and their use in teacher education. They discuss the novel "Charlotte's Web" to explore the affordances of aesthetics, reading styles, the gap between literacy and literature, and motivations to read. They also pose several questions for determining the most suitable literature for teaching a certain topic.
