What no one talks about is the kid-centric view that leads to literary development. Kiddies don't want to jump to being adults and reading Dostoevsky, because both of these are super lame to kids. What they are almost immeasurably proud of, however, is surpassing their previous level (often expressed by pointing the finger and sneering at those still at the lower level).
