Early children's literature consisted of spoken stories, songs, and poems, used to educate, instruct, and entertain children. It was only in the eighteenth century, with the development of the concept of childhood, that a separate genre of children's literature began to emerge, with its own divisions and expectations. The earliest of these books were educational books, books on conduct, and simple ABCs—often decorated with animals, plants etc.
