Contributions of children's literature to learn notions of historical time: reading and questioning

This paper approaches the development of notions of historical time based on contributions of children's literature. How can the fiction literature language, which is constitutive of the child formative process, contribute to learn historical temporality in the first grades? The authors analyze the theme having as reference readings of well known literature works in Brazilian school education.
