In the other hand, there are large number of children’s story books  which are labeled according to the age and level of the child’s own development, but in fact  incompatible with their age. The children’s story books in the form of short stories, novels or comics are dominated by foreign markets such as Walt Disney series, Japan comics series , and many more.
