Your work on Wikijunior has been commendable, Xixtas, and I think that this
is another expression of the renaissance that the entire Wikibooks project
is going through. It is neither a quick nor easy process, certainly, but it
is happening none-the-less.
I will certainly weigh in with my two cents on the pages that you linked to,
for what my opinion on those matters are worth. Wikijunior is an admirable
project, and all of Wikibooks will benefit from your improvements.

I thought I'd send a message to this list for those who might be interested
but do not monitor the Wikijunior front page or the Wikijunior talk page on
Wikijunior has made a pretty good start on +/-14 non-fiction titles for
children, and that's something that I think we at Wikijunior should be
of. During the creation of those titles their have been lessons learned and
Wikijunior has some new guidelines proposed including one that redefines
what kind of books can be produced under the Wikijunior umbrella. This
proposed guideline can be found at
proposed guideline along with the style guide at
and the new title
. There is also
a request for a Wikijunior namespace to be created within Wikibooks. The
request is here: http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9283
These changes represent a change of direction for Wikijunior and I hope all
those who are interested will comment and participate. I think that a
of direction is wanted and needed by those working on the project and
developing the content. I hope that these changes will lead to renewed
interest and participation in the the idea of Wikijunior.
Hopefully these changes will lead to renewed interest from people outside
the Wikijunior Community and even greater participation from content
developers than Wikijunior already enjoys.
