Narration or story-type writing, as found in historical and multi-ethnic fictional tradebooks, on the other hand, is that artistic form created for evoking images, ideas and feelings in addition to presenting accurate facts and settings. In Literature for Today's Young Adults, Donelson and Nilsen (1989) note that literature, used within the social studies context, frees students to travel vicariously to other times and places, and helps them to recognize that members of the human race, regardless of where or how they live, have more similarities than differences.
