Storytelling has evolved from a long history of folk tradition and has
developed into the current children’s book market; reading remains a
very important part of a child’s development, encouraged for both
educational and enjoyment reasons. Many programmes have been developed
to ensure that children are getting the most out of books, including
government initiatives and schemes developed by associations, local
authorities, book clubs and groups; schools and parents try to encourage
reading with children at a very early age to ensure learning begins at a
suitable age and is maintained throughout a child’s development.

There are a variety of children’s books available and these represent
the various stages of development in a child’s learning; these books
range from picture books and fictional stories to non-fictional school
and educational books. All of these are featured within the scope of

exclusive consumer research into attitudes and opinions towards children
reading books and the purchase of children’s books.
