The foremost thing to consider is your child’s interests. Is he or she into fiction or non-fiction books? Would he or she appreciate activity books or educational books? If short stories are based on cartoon characters, would they have a greater appeal? If you are not sure, it’s better to get one type of each book (one story, one activity book, and so on), rather than multiple books of the same category.
Value for Price
Consider what the book is offering against its apparent features. A certain board book has clear sound, but only five pages. Is it worth the investment? A soft cover book has more pages but it is preloved and clearly in a worn condition. Would it last long? A sticker book has lots of really cool stickers and fun activities but it seems pricey. Go for books that justify their prices. The main aim, of course, is that children actually read them over and over and enjoy them.
