According to The Alpine Fellowship 2018 'On Childhood’ ,"In ancient literature you will find children, but you will not find childhood. The children portrayed in ancient texts are incomplete adults. They do not reach adulthood by passing through a world of their own, in which magic forces overcome all threats and maintain a regime of comforts. They do not enjoy a special kind of innocence, nor do they have an art and a literature in which children and their imagined companions take centre stage.Children’s literature derives from fairy tales addressed specifically to the child’s state of mind, and which play with the residue of hunter-gatherer terrors". Participants visualize your idea of childhood and show how it merge with modern world.
