How do you choose a picture book?

When choosing books for your child, take their age and reading capacity into consideration. For pre-readers, choose books that have bold, vivid, and colorful illustrations of everyday objects. For beginners, choose books with simple storylines and illustrations that closely match what is going on in the story.  For independent readers, choose books where the illustrations tell a story of their own in fiction, or where they provide information of their own in non-fiction.
