Minecraft is one of my favorite games. Minecraft is important to kids because it teaches them how to use there imagination. You can make buildings, towns, anything you want. If you need help making it you can open it to LAN and that lets people join. Some people If they get on your place they will blow up your place with TNT. You can put them on a mode that they can't do that. When you open it to LAN you can chat with people. You can also fight other people in Minecraft, or you can fight monsters like zombies, endermen, spiders, withers, the enderdragon, ghast, blazes and more. Their is no blood just to lets you know.
You can also get a put cat and wolfs. If you get wolfs you they will defend if you are being attack. The cat just follows. You could get an army dogs to protect you.
