 ABSTRACT

This project is on a critical study of the theme of moral reformation in children’s literature. The two prose works; Give Me a Chance by Alice Obong-Eren and The Sacred Cow by Umoinyang Umoinyang were used in the study. The purpose of the study was to examine the theme of moral reformation in children’s literature using the two novels mentioned above.

Obong-Eren’s Give Me a Chance and Umoinyang’s The Sacred Cow were the primary sources of information, the internet and journals were secondary sources of information. The finding shows the well-defined themes such as the theme of hard-work and success, reconciliation, ambition and determination and vicissitude of life and perseverance bound at propelling the interest of the pupils towards forging their studies ahead with seriousness, having intention to succeed since such themes can intrigue the children to know that with determination and hard-work one may likely be lead to success and prosperity as it is in the case of Rita in the novel Give Me a Chance.

The finding also shows such themes like, theme of over pampering of only child and the theme of corruption. These themes are presumably considered necessary when dealing with children texts as they help children to refrain from unwanted attitude found in the life of a specific character Idara who was pampered by his parents and later got spoiled and as such draw out a good moral lesson to parent and children. In conclusion, a well-defined and effective handling of themes in children literary text can impact positive good morals in the life of children.
