Children's literature is for readers and listeners up to about age 12. It is often illustrated. The term is used in senses that sometimes exclude young-adult fiction, comic books, or other genres. Books specifically for children existed at least several hundred years ago.

    To lose one parent, Mr. Worthing, may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness.
