- Appropriate texts for children may contribute to support their self-development in many aspects. Text selection should consider cultural values, for children do not grow up in an empty culture environment. Children’s literature are mostly the creation of men of letters. Thus, do teachers or lecturers need to participate in creating more works for children? Based on the problem, this study aims at developing a model of children’s literature that is adjusted to their development stages. The research belongs to descriptive qualitative research, employing Brady’s theory on children developmental stages and Corry Layun Rampan’s writing techniques for children’s literature. It also uses literature review and creative process. The results are a work of children’s literature entitled “Rambut Keriting Surti.” The work can be further used as a reading model for elementary school students, at the age group of 10-12 years old. The story was written by considering the children’s development stages, particularly emotional, intellectual, and personal development.
