More Usability Publications and Guidelines

Microsoft has lots of Published Materials from Microsoft's usability community.

Among these also Hanna, Risden & Alexander's Guidelines for usability testing with children.
Even thought it is an older publication (1997), Tim Fidgeon (from my previous post) definitely read this part:

Gauge how much children like a program by observing signs of
engagement such as smiles and laughs or leaning forward to
try things, and signs of disengagement such as frowns, sighs,
yawns, or turning away from the computer.
These behavioral signs are much more reliable
than children’s responses to questions about whether or
not they like something
