Abstract/Description: "The purpose of this paper is to trace the origin and progress of the Sunday-school movement and its influence on the development of children's literature. The procedure followed in this paper has been to identify, read and analyze all available material on the subject of the Sunday-school movement--its origin, its founder, Robert Raikes, and its progress in England and America. The authors who wrote for children during this period were studied carefully--their backgrounds and lives and their interests in the movement. Lastly, all available children's books written by these authors were read or examined critically"--Introduction.
