    When I was a kid, I would always run to the books that had nice glossy covers, and lots of pictures, with a lot of words in them (I was an avid reader, and had a grade 3 reading level in the first grade).
    I also liked it if they had speech bubbles, rhyming words, and if the pictures were really eyecatching.

    I am 13, I loved books and reading my entire life. I also have a six year old brother. It depends on the kid. I liked books that rhyme, books with good illustrations are a must, and books with characters without long stupid names. Like I read him Raggedy Ann & Andy and there is a character named Mr. Hooligily? WTF, why can’t you just name him Mr. Jones. Reading the name Mr. Hooligily like 25 times isn’t easy. My favorite book when I was in preschool was called “If you give a pig a pancake”. It’s still very popular. I made someone read it to me everyday.

    I don’t have kids, but i definitely wouldn’t read them a book that includes evil old men trying to kill babies, feeding dead bodies to snakes, and blowing up children at schools. and kids learning witchcraft and satanism.

    Not that that’s an actual book or anything, just hypothetically speaking.

    Magic. Or at least, that’s what it feels like when I’m trying to write one – LOL.
