For the purpose of this paper, children’s leisure reading will be defined as the reading of worthwhile literature written especially for children. This paper will only deal with the prose writings in this field, and does not include the basal reader program, nor such things as comic books, children's magazines, and the like. Now that a definition of leisure reading has been established, it is necessary to determine the value of leisure reading. A very common attitude toward leisure reading has been that it is an extra, added attraction, that the basal reader program provided in modern education more than adequately instructs children in the skills of reading.
