I may be wrong, but I would consider that a booklet.  If so, the Help Center says:

Leaflet/pamphlet/booklets with an ISBN  may be posted. If so, the number of pages must be included in the item description, and the description of the book clearly described with regard to its brief length and size.

Do the booklet rules apply to children's books?  It seems that many children's paperbacks (especially early readers) could fall into this description.  What defines a booklet?

if it is a kid's book I don't see why not.  did you try putting in the ISBN?  did it pull up?

I just put in the ISBN and a book pulled up that I could order (not sure if it is yours or someone else's).  If it isn't yours then I say post it because someone else did!

I'm not familiar with the book, but it sounds like a fairly typical children's book.  As long as all the information is clearly stated in the description, I'd think it would be fine.

I don't think booklet applies here.  It's a thin paperback children's book. 

You might add the number of pages to the listing, if only to help make the database more complete and accurate.  While you're there, add a subject and description.  :-)

Thanks, I didn't think about it being a children's book, but I don't think that matters. It is postable.  I just searched it, and there are already some copies (with different ISBNs) listed.

(Edited because I left out a word.)

It's okay if the cover shown doesn't match your book, as long as your book is that ISBN and book type, title and author, you're fine.

It's fine since it's a Children's Book. If it were like one of those Disney type kids magazines then you couldn't post it here. But an I Can Read is fine. You might have to mail it first class though unless you mail it wiht other books. I think someone posted recently that they had a thin book like that come back or something because it was too thin for media mail.

Mary, I think the thickness rules apply only if you're using DC with media mail.  But that said, probably the book is light enough to go first class anyway.

Whether it is a booklet or a children's book, doesn't matter. What matters is that it HAS an ISBN and is a book product. If it had an ISBN and was a deck of cards, that's different, but it is obviously some type of book and has an ISBN and there for is postable. Not everything with an ISBN is postable but every type of book with an ISBN is postable, as long a it meets the guidelines.
