When it comes to choosing books for young children, there are some specific considerations that you should make. For example, you should be looking at how the book actually looks. You should be looking for books that seem like they might be easy to read, which means for a younger audience that the book will only have 50 pages or less. Choose a book that has an engaging story and that has both text and illustrations on each of the pages. These are going to be the best types of books for children that are beyond normal picture books but that are generally considered to be too young for chapter books.
For example, there is a book called “If You Take a Mouse to School,” that is an excellent example. This book has larger text in comparison to adult books, and the sentences are short and are specifically written to be easily read by the younger audience. You should be looking for books that have uncluttered pages with a lot of white space. You should also look specifically for books that have pictures capable of giving clues relating to the story. This is going to help your child read and understand the words on the page and their individual meanings as related to the story.
Visit children’s book events and read about authors in the area that write for young audiences. Get business cards for local authors and local children’s bookstores, and keep a list of authors and types of books that appeal to you and your family so that you can pick up new books for your children and your family on a regular basis. Finding the right books may not always seem like an easy task but if you put some effort into it, you can find the right books for your young child or children.
