Definition of the "Children's and Middle Grade Genre": Children who are reading these ebooks are still at the stage of their life where they are focused inward. They are figuring themselves out (a process that shouldn't stop just because we grow older), and so they focus what they want to read on that stage of their lives. While characters in the Children's and Middle Grade genre grow during the stories, the growth is internal by nature. Ebooks in this genre typically focus on friendship, as children are working out what it makes to be a responsible friend to others, and what they look for in friends themselves.
Some bestselling ebooks in the Children's and Middle Grade genre are Katherine Applegate (The One and Only Ivan), R.J. Palacio (Wonder), Jacqueline Woodson (Brown Girl Dreaming), and Sharon Draper (Out of My Mind).

In children, education is a marriage between academic structure and sensual inspiration. Playing recruits their natural powers of imagination and reduces boredom or resistance. As an inherent avenue to assimilate the overwhelming amount of data received daily, playing emulates the skills they will need in the future. Indeed, creating examples of rivalry and agreement through active participation and visualization captures the essence of playtime and capitalizes on their interpretation of battle. American history is writ in conflict, survival, and success; and fundamental to this history is the contribution of the Founding Fathers, who forged independence, framed the Constitution, and paved the path to freedom. Analogous to these lessons are those of children. A Color Picture Book on the American Founding Fathers combines the structures of learning while simultaneously creating an interactive scenario of conflict and resolution.
Kids reach an age when they become fascinated with their bodies and the bodies of others. A book about anatomy and physiology would help them better understand the similarities and differences between male and female forms and human bodies and the bodies of other animals. Better yet, this type of book would be a great primer for future biology classes.
Kids who learn about the world and the places and people in it at a young age are more likely to be open to other cultures and races, as well as more likely to travel.
