Self-published authors face the dilemma of choosing among various print choices for their children's picture book stories (all of which are expensive). Gone are the days of Golden Books (for some reason). An author has the choice of a hard cover book that would end up having to retail at about $24.95 (24 page color) or a thin glossy "paperback" book that would probably retail at $12.95 I am thinking about adding a narrated CD in the back of the glossy version to add more value, but do parents prefer hard cover picture books for children approx. age 4 - 6 ?

CroftRoan, This is VERY helpful. Thank you. It's exactly what my younger friend who has a little 5 year old told me. I think that's much more do-able for me. I'm going to try to get a kick-starter funding and wanted more input. Much appreciation
Let me know when you get the kickstarter up. I can spread the word through my connections.
CroftRoan, Wow, thank you so much. I'll let you know when my kickstarter video "kicks in - How nice of you :) !!!
Crafy, thanks so much. Are board books those old Golden Books or Tell-a-Tale books. I wish I could get my story in that cardboard book format that Golden Books and Western Publishing had. I don't see that offered any more.
We had a mixture of different ones, including Dr. Seuss board books. My aunt published a children's book in hardcover with a dust jacket, but I have no idea what the details were.
