This project examines the reading failure rate of elementary school and high school students and the reasons for failure. The main point addressed is that high school students were not introduced to their literature from an early age, and therefore have a very low level of interest and understanding of it. The idea of translating high school literature into children's literature is proposed, along with the reasons current teaching methods are not functional and how these translations will fill the cognitive gap. It also includes a special project of the Wife of Bath's Tale as a children's book.
