I have been researching into what makes a successful children’s book from the point of view of the children. I found some very interesting charts and statistics that point towards the uses of children’s books in the forms of print and ebooks, and also how children decide what book to read and what they want to gain from it. These findings seem to cover various different age groups, and I will be focusing on the younger categories as this is more relevant to my target audience, but it was interesting to see what changes though-out different age groups and what stays the same. This report will help me to keep in mind from the childrens point of view what makes books successful, and then I can refer to this when it comes to actually making my own.
