Today there are books for children of every age, from babies of a few weeks old to teenagers close to graduation. The subject matter is equally varied; it includes fiction, fact and fancy, poetry and prose, jokes and riddles, biography and sports, nature and how-to. Furthermore, the books come in an astonishing variety of shapes and sizes and materials—a far cry from the standard oblong clothbound or paperbound adult books.
