Writing, Publishing & Teaching Children to Write: How to Publish a Children’s Picture Book

Publish a children’s picture book by being persistent and researching what books are out there to learn what publishers are gravitating towards. It’s not easy to write for children but if you have the desire it can be manifested in ways that can reap great rewards.

The idea that writing that great children’s book is hard is a fallacy.  Writing children’s books comes solely from the heart… the heart of a child!  It is a process that takes time, skill and determination. You cannot publish stories for child without an intimate knowledge of what children like.  You cannot just write a story without structure.  Research is your key and your friend.  There are so many bad children’s books out there and I find more and more authors think they can just publish a book and they’re going to be the next J. K. Rowling.  It doesn’t work like that.  You need to understand children first and what they like then fashion a story to that like.

Writing for children has it’s merits.  Many of the stories are less constrictive than say a long, drawn out romance story or a taught spy thriller.  In the case of writing for children, the story must have a clear and precise plot structure that children can follow and be a part of.  These stories must also bring fun to children in a wild an imaginative way.  This helps children understand and see the story through to it’s logical end.  Even though children have wonderful imaginations, changing a story around can have disastrous effects on the way children view your creations.

Bringing a children’s book to fruition takes a mind like a child’s.  You must see their world as they see it and bring it to them in a way that tickles their intuitiveness.  Making stories shine is how you can make this happen.

Here are a few stories that do just that.

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

My Best Friend Is A Space Alien, Really!!! (Book 5)
