In the last three decades or so, children s welfare has generated new interest. There has been a global outcry to revisit issues such as children s safety, children s rights and children s education. This increased consciousness has stemmed mainly from child abuse, child neglect and child exploitation that loom large around us. This book therefore makes a significant contribution to global concerns about children s welfare. It highlights the importance of oral literature in children s social and psychological development. The role of oral literature in the inculcation of moral and cultural values is underpinned. The author concludes by arguing that oral literature can be used to expose children to issues of ethical nature; thereby contributing to the moulding of future generations into individuals of moral integrity.
