Resumo


Abstract
This article aims to identify literary texts that may be used in the teaching of the French language to children in an exolingue context. The research has been developed in three axes. The first concerned a bibliographic study following Poslaniec (2002), Vanthier (2009), Sumiya, Gotti and Rochebois (2013), Rocha (2007), Silva (2013) and Pinheiro-Mariz (2007), attempting to deepen our knowledge of the theme under investigation. The second axis consisted of an exploratory documentary research, which sought to identify literary texts for the teaching of the French language to children. Finally, the last phase of the research shed light on elements of the literary aesthetics in the selected texts. Through this research, we have identified ten literary texts that could contribute not only to literary reading enjoyment, but also to a better development of the child. The results have proved that a literary text can be an important component/auxiliary in the teaching-learning process of French as a Foreign Language (FLE), allowing the FLE teacher to present the French language to the students in a pleasant way.
