Writing Picture Books For Kids – Videos For Writers

I’ve never even tried to write a picture book for kids, but I’ve gotten questions about that writing specialty.  This video, which is mostly audio, sounds to me as if it spells out exactly what a writer needs to consider when writing picture books.

The video is presented by something called the CBI Clubhouse. Billed as the ultimate learning & sharing spot for children’s writers, I suspect it’s an excellent resource for anyone who wants to know about writing books for children of any age. They charge almost $5 a month, so tread cautiously.  Take the tour, poke around, it may be something you want to try.

  • This has been really interesting and helpful. Thank you.

  • Some attribute it to Oscar Wilde. Hutchins apparently put it down in print in 1939. My cousins’ roomie knew him, and the quote seems consistent with the little I heard.

  • The video is good, though it’s a lot more like a slide show than a video. Valid points, every one of them. Probably could save a novice a lot of time. But I wish novice writers felt the same way about writing children’s books that Robert Hutchins felt about exercise: “Whenever I feel like exercise, I lie down until the feeling passes.”

      I though it was Phyllis Diller who said that 😉
