I have several childrens books started myself, Lexxus656. I can't say why I haven't sent them off for responses. I believe that I can still do something to make it a little bit better everytime I look at one. My son is four. He likes book to make him laugh. He likes repetition of something fun throughout the book, like a funny phrase, the appeareance of something on each page, things like that. He likes to also feel he can interact with the book...... like the little boy ran fast - and he con simulate running as the little boy is. I hope any of this helps. Best wishes on getting published. An insider secret I know is that publishers don't like writers to send in their own illustrations to books. They usually have preferred illustrators and are just looking for fresh voices.

My kids are ages 7, 8, 9, and 16 - they read all kinds of different things ranging from the Tinker Bell Fairy series to Junie B. Jones. They also like The Littles, Harold and the Purple Crayon, anything non-fiction, any type of craft book, and pirate books. Lately, they've been very interested in Fairyopolis, Dragonology, Pirateology, and Egyptology.

My girls have a huge collection of books they love any books about animals (the cuter and the better and baby animals work better in their eyes) they love books they can relate to for example my eldest just started school and she got given two story books about first days at school and she loved them, or for example books with ryhming sentences they like the pace of those! Really though (they are 4 and 2) they love all books especially if I read to them ones that are exciting or require funny voices from me go down well and sometimes i dont think its the book so much but more the way it is read to them and the attitude we as parents give them towards books if they are shown in a positive fun light then they will enjoy reading books in my opinion
