Children Books Must Earn Passage to Our Children

Advertisements and promotions often drive sales of children goods. Marketing plays a huge role in the distribution and sales of children books. Parents, teachers, librarians and others responsible for their acquisition are affected and often persuaded by hype.

But popular does not always mean good or beneficial. But often time we find ourselves yielding the passage of books to our children without sending them through the proper evaluative processes. If we allow a book to pass we may have no idea what its' benefits or consequences will be for our children. It may lead them into harm’s way, cause them to make miscalculations or set back many advances made by our children.

The criteria used to evaluate the children book's content should include items related to their ability to entertain, educate and inspire. These components will vary greatly in their contributions depending on the selection and type of books chosen. A blend or balance of these three components is most desired. No children books should be purchased and allow passage to children without scrutiny. It is reasonable that some books purchased should be solely for the fun, joy, laughter and amusement of the children. But even these should have to clear a high bar to gain passage to the children.

Our general reluctance to scrutinize children books must be overcome so that we choose the best and most beneficial books for our children. The contemporary demands of children command us to weed out the least beneficial and allow only those children book that earn passage to gain passage.
