Classics: Why We Should Encourage Children to Read Them is a non-fiction educational work written by Fiza Pathan. Pathan is an educator and author who attributes much of her career success to a broad base of classics reading, both as a child and an adult. She discusses the books that made the biggest impact on her personally and includes suggested reading lists for boys and girls. She argues that classics exercise the imagination and build a firm base for learning and living. Pathan bases much of her work as a teacher of English on the classics, but she shows how reading the classics can impact a child’s performance in other academic disciplines.
