These books are typically aimed at readers between the ages of 0-12 and cover a wide range of topics, from picture books for toddlers to chapter books for older children. Children's books often feature colorful illustrations, simple language, and engaging stories that are meant to entertain, educate, and inspire young readers. They can cover a variety of genres, including fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and more, and are an essential part of a child's early education and development.

Fairy tales

These stories often involve mythical creatures, such as fairies, witches, and dragons, and are often set in a far-off land or a magical kingdom. Fairy tales are often aimed at children, but can also be enjoyed by adults, and have been passed down through generations as a way of teaching important values and lessons.
