    If you have an idea for a story then just get it on to paper. Then work on expanding it and maybe add pictures. If you want some good advice on writing then you should visit This is probably the best writing community on the web.

    Don't look on children's writing as an easy option, it ain't, it is one of the most dificult.  Children are often the most observent of errors and holes in plots, and often the most severe critics.  They demand as much story and chracterisation that can be found in adult books, don't talk down to them.

    I think it's key to think like a child as you write a children's book. Let your imagination be free, like it was when you were a child! I also think it's important to write it more simple than you would if you were writing a book for adults. You definitely have to target your audience. And of course pictures are the best part of a book for children. I would love to write a children's book! smile

    Just write it! I was writing poetry and oped pieces until about 8 years ago when my son (then age 7) comes home from school and tells me I have to write stories about his classmates favorite things. Puzzled I called his teacher and she informed me that during, "what does your parent do for work", session my son stands up and tells the class his father is the best writer in the world. I had one week to write stories for 16 kids. I finished them in time for my then wife to read them to the class (I can be monotonic). Seeing the look on those kids faces hooked me and I have been writing children stories ever since. I would have never thought I could or wanted to until my son put the pressure on.
    Let your imagination loose, think not as an adult but look at the world through your eyes at a certain age from your growing up. You will be amazed at the stories and ideas that will come. Check out your local library for children book basics this will help also along with a little web searching can get you started.
