Publisher's Summary

Do you want to know how to write a children's book?
Have you ever said, "I've always wanted to write a book for kids!" but then never got around to it? Maybe you didn't know where to start, or how to get a good idea. Now you can start to write your book for children when you listen to How to Write a Children's Book, brought to you by the Institute of Children's Literature.
There are so many different kinds of children's books - from picture books to chapter books, middle grade novels, and young adult - it's hard to know which way to go. Should you decide you're going to write for a particular age group and then come up with an idea that fits them? Or should you decide to write a story or article about a particular idea, then choose the age group that's right for it? Almost anything can become a nonfiction topic for young listeners, given their curiosity and appetite for facts about the world around them. But each topic has to be aimed at the right readership. You'll have a much better handle on all of this, and more, once you listen to the chapter "How Old Is Your Reader?"
How to Write a Children's Book will start you on your way to being an author.
Whether you want to have a full-blown career writing children's books, be traditionally published, self-published, or simply want one book to hand down to your own children and grandkids, How to Write a Children's Book will help you.

Horrible

I don't know if this book could be better with a different reader but I am having a really hard time listening to it when it sounds like it's a 12-year-old i'm taking advice from. Very obvious everything in this book.
