A peanut gallery was, in the days of vaudeville, a nickname for the cheapest (and ostensibly rowdiest) seats in the theater, the occupants of which were often known to heckle.
The least expensive snack served at the theatre would often be peanuts,

gallery" or "quiet in the peanut gallery" are extensions of the name.
In 1943 the Howdy Doody children's radio show adopted the name to represent its audience of children. Howdy Doody is most remembered for its later transition to television,
which continued the Peanut Gallery audience, now on camera.

Children's literature can be traced to stories and songs, part of a wider oral tradition,
that adults shared with children before publishing existed. The
development of early children's literature, before printing was
invented, is difficult to trace. Even after printing became widespread,
many classic "children's" tales were originally created for adults and
later adapted for a younger audience. Since the 1400s, a large quantity
of literature, often with a moral or religious message, has been aimed
specifically at children. The late nineteenth and early twentieth
centuries became known as the "Golden Age of Children's Literature" as
