Exploring an Author`s Vision of Nonfiction for Children
Eun Ja Hyun
Nonfiction as a genre of children`s literature is distinguished from fiction by emphasis. In fiction the story is central, and in nonfiction the facts are central, but the nonfiction writer needs to find a way to create his or her own personal vision for the book to be more than a mere collection of facts. Nonfiction has often used fictional elements to present data : it re-creates believable characters, discovers plot lines, establishes points of view, describes settings and presents carefully designed illustrations. Sometimes the author`s worldview is revealed in nonfiction writing. For example, in Orbis Pictus(1657), John Amos Comenius based his writing on a Christian worldview and created text and pictures as a device to teach students the world God created.
