Criteria for a Good Book

bookSome years ago a young stu­dent (I no longer have name or where­abouts) sent me the fol­low­ing “Cri­te­ria for a good book.”  I believe it was a stu­dent assign­ment.  In any case, here it is, just as it was sent (and spelled). I’ve nev­er read a bet­ter analy­sis of what children’s lit­er­a­ture is.

Cri­te­ria for a good book
