The potential of local literature as a source of language learning which is3 rich, vibrant, and more spontaneous to teach and as a medium to develop literacy as well as to instill local values is overlooked in teaching English in Indonesia including teaching English for young learners. This paper is based on an on-going study which aims to (1) find out TEFL students’ familiarity with Indonesian local literature, (2) know TEFL students’ perception on the local literature, (3) develop English language skill materials based on local literature, and (4) utilize visual aid to present the material. The respondents were 15 students of TEFL class prepared to be Primary School English tutors. Data for objectives (1) and (2) were collected via survey and discussed descriptively. Data for objectives (3) and (4) were a proposed prototype developed by teacher and students. Results show that 33.3% of the students know only one local story, 26.7% know three local stories, and the rest (40%) know between four to nine local stories. The stories chosen by the students as their favorite are stories containing moral values such as respect to parents, loyalty, and compassion. The story chosen to develop as learning material is Malin Kundang. Key words: Indonesian local literature, English teaching, young leaners
