A brief history of children’s books in the style of a children’s book

This month is International Children's Book Day, so we thought we'd write a short children's story about the history of children's stories.

Children's Books

Children's books have been a staple of literature for centuries. From picture books to chapter books, they have helped shape the imaginations and learning of countless generations of children. In this blog post, we will provide a brief history of children's books and how they have evolved over time.

A brief history of children’s books in the style of a children’s book


Once upon a time, many years ago,

Books were only for grown-ups, you know.

Children were not thought to have the ability

To read or appreciate a good story.

But then, in the 18th century, a man named John Newbery

Saw the potential for books for children, oh very very.

He published "A Little Pretty Pocket-Book,"

A book for children, which was a big step.

Soon, others followed his lead,

Writing stories and poems for children to read.

In the 19th century, the Grimm brothers

Collected fairy tales, which still today we discover.

In the 20th century, Dr. Seuss became a star,

His silly rhymes and illustrations took us far.

And then there was Harry Potter, a boy wizard,

Whose books sold millions, it was like a blizzard.!

Now, there are books for every age,

From board books to young adults, they fill up a whole page.

Children's books transport you as you flip pages with hands

To magical kingdoms and enchanted lands.

So, always remember to read and explore,

To discover new worlds and open up doors.

Thanks to the visionaries who paved the way,

Children's books are here to stay, hooray!
