Barney Publishing knew that picture books are suitable for younger children. They made sure their Barney books would be in full color, and even though this made them more expensive to print, they knew the parents would buy them because of Barney's reputations and the quality of work that went into each book. The Barney Publishers also knew that on the plus side, Barney picture books tend to be shorter, and soft cover, but they also knew they needed writers that were very good to grab a child or a parents interest and keep them in the the story to the end.
