If you want to learn how to write books for children and for kids, the tips I’m about to give you in this Guide can be very useful.

Writing stories for children is an ambition of many writers. If you have children or grandchildren, you will surely have read many stories for them and others you will have invented for them. Indeed, by dint of inventing stories at the request of your children, perhaps it occurred to you that you could write them down and turn them into a book.

Why not? The children’s literature sector is constantly growing, because children love to read and because parents are keen to give continuous creative stimulation to their children.

This on the one hand means that the market is very competitive, but on the other hand it means that there is a lot of demand.

So, don’t be shy: if you have some compelling stories going around in your head, if you have invented many stories to put your children to sleep, or simply if you have a strong creative vein and want to give voice to the child in you , take a pen and paper and write your children’s book.

Writing Books for Children: Anything but a Game for Kids

Excuse the pun, but the starting point is just that: writing a children’s book is not easy at all.

Who has never read or browsed a children’s book? Well, turning those pages rich in images and often written in very large characters, many think that writing a children’s book is easy.

What does it take to invent a short story that, in a row, occupies a few pages? Then just lay out the text with very large characters, enrich it all with great designs … and voila! The children’s book is made.

To say it actually is easy, but to do it not so, I assure you.

Writing a book for children is not easy first of all because the imagination of children is much richer and more active than ours of adults (fortunately for them and our misfortune).

Have you ever been assaulted by a flurry of questions from a child? Children are curious, they want to know, they ask spontaneously, but if they do not receive the answers they expect they remain unhappy. So when they read or listen to a story, children need to find all the information in the text to give life to their fantasy world.

Writing books for children and for children means being able to think (again) like them.
