Abstract
The theme of this essay is to examine how prophet stories are presented for children. The specific aim is to analyze the narrative structure of two texts presenting the story of Adam.

These tools are used on both texts to discuss and determine the structure of each text, and present how the narrative is performed. The analysis also contains a study dealing with the Qur’an verses used in each text,... (More)

These tools are used on both texts to discuss and determine the structure of each text, and present how the narrative is performed. The analysis also contains a study dealing with the Qur’an verses used in each text, discussing their role in each story.

The result shows that the two stories have different structures and are performed differently. However, they are both based upon the same story and use Qur’an verses to legitimatize and justify what they are saying in the stories, both stories have messages aiming to guide and teach, and end with a round up of the plot, which stimulates children’s imagination, and allows innumerable interpretations to be made.
