Practical & Creative Writing Lessons : Children’s Books Writing Ideas

To write a children’s book, first decide what age level will read it, find out how to market the book and decide what kind of message it will portray. You can begin by going to amazon and looking for the top 100 children’s books and see what’s selling the best.  There are literally 1000’s of ideas from children’s fiction to how-to books to books that teach children about specific people places, things or ideas.

To write for children, you need to understand how a child thinks and what they are looking for.  Children see things differently than adults so this is a key idea you must focus in on.  Creative writing for children goes that one step beyond by writing stories that grab their imagination and inspire them.

What types of stories do they like?  Here are a few ideas you can work with:

  • zombies
  • monsters
  • animals
  • space aliens
  • school
  • sports

The ideas are numerous if you take the time to understand the writing process.  Creative writing for children takes a basic idea and builds on it to a point where it grabs a child’s attention and keeps them interested.  Boring stories or stories that are not age-appropriate are the types that fail.  Know your readers and what they want and those stories will sell themselves.

Here are a few children stories that are doing well on amazon.com right now:

My Best Friend Is A Human, Really!!! (Book #1)

My Best Friend Is A Zombie, Really!!! (Book #2)

My Best Friend Is A Robot, Really!!! (Book #3)

My Best Friend Is A Monster, Really!!! (Book #4)

Writing creative stories for children is a very enjoyable experience, especially when you see the look on the faces of the children after they have read your work.
