Makes you happy. You don’t have to be a kid to enjoy them. They are also written in a very easy to understand manner using simple English to make sure that kids acim reading them.
Children’s books have various characters and styles. Some of them have regular people and some have animals which are anthropomorphized (made human like) and talk to each other just like humans. The most popular books belong to the fantasy genre, books like “Harry Potter”, “Eragon” etc. come under this category. There are many more different genres and categories in children’s books.
The best way to classify children’s books is according to the age group. Books are written for kids of different age groups. You have really simple easy to read tiny picture books for young children, while you have longer more challenging books for older kids. Below is a list of different types of books kids can read:-
Children’s Picture Books:
These books are generally for children who are in the age group between 0 and 7. These books contain a lot of pictures and very few words. Most of them have less than 100 words. The books for really young kids have very few words as they cannot read at that age, but as they grow older the number of words keeps increasing. The difficulty level of the writing also goes up to give children a challenge.
Some of them are written using rhyming prose and poetry to make the writing more entertaining and fun. An example of a great children’s book is the “Gruffalo”. This book is a picture book written for young kids. It has a lot of pictures and the story is described using easy to ready rhyming verse which makes it interesting to read for really young kids.
You don’t have to be a child to enjoy these books as I have met hundreds of adults who enjoy reading picture books.
Chapter books and novels for children:
As Children get older they will want to read books that have more words in them. This is a good thing as it will help improve their reading and writing skills.
A good thing would be to get them started on chapter books which are books which have about 3,000 to 10,000 words. After they start reading and enjoying chapter books you can get them to read easy to read books like “Chronicles of Narnia Series” and “Charlotte’s Web.” These books are really fun to read. You could also get them to read books like “Harry Potter” and other Fantasy Novels.
