    As a former junior school helper for five years I recognise that the level to pitch to in terms of reading ability of childrens stories is dependant upon the aptitude and attitude of each child. Some six year olds would be capeable of understanding words used in stories that some tweleve year olds could not. Our schools are crying out in the public sector to get our childrens' literacy skills improved. Therefore there really is not a benchmark to aim for in terms of reading age with the story.

    I have started a childrens story of my own and would welcome any feedback on my hub:
    Peak District - Fandanzel. A fun story for children

    This was such a great topic that I ended up writing two hubs on it and have a pile of books by my computer to write more hubs.  Even better--I pulled out those favorite books and read them again to my kids.  My husband and older son read them too!  Great books never get tiring:  Here is Funniest Childrens books for early readers:
