It must have a specific strong point as it will be your marketing tool in luring children to actually want to read your book, and once they do, it would invite more children to buy your work and read it. You also have to take in consideration that children are much more opinionated when it comes to what they read. You must stray from false lectures that would make them think that you are trying to teach them. Your books lines must be interesting and entertaining as well as educational. But you do not have to speak to them like they are illiterates. Remember that they are children and some of them do not want to be told what to do.
