    1. anything really. you can tell most children books by how simple the sentences are and the use of words describing sound, like CRASH, PUSH, BAM, CRACKLE. so if you find something like that online your good to go.

    1. I agree. The application video really should be longer. I just applied for the second time. I always get nervous on the video because it has to be so short. I'm scared I won't finish in time and my nervousness usually shows.
