WHY WRITE FOR CHILDREN?

Photo of a fan with "Jakob Jakobsen", the Danish edition of my book "Jamie's Story." 
This very young man hasn't yet learned to email, so it's his mother who sent me this photo, and told me how much he loves this book. (And yes, she gave me permission to use it in this post.) Over the years, many adults have told me how much one of my books meant to them as a child. Perhaps this fan will also, one day, do the same. 
Is there any better reward for one's life work than this?
