Are You Ready to Write a Children’s Picture Book?

Here’s a short quiz from the website of Darcy Pattison, faculty for our workshop PB&J: Picture Books and All That Jazz:

ARE YOU READY TO WRITE A CHILDREN’S PICTURE BOOK?

  1. How many pages are in a typical children’s picture book?
  2. Who is the audience of a children’s picture book? Hint: It’s not just kids.
  3. Are there restrictions on the vocabulary you use in a picture book?
  4. Do I have to write in rhyme? Do manuscripts written in rhyme sell better?
  5. Do EPUB books have to the same length as printed books?

If you’re not sure of the answers, you might want to visit Darcy’s website, attend the workshop, or get a copy of her book, How to Write a Children’s Picture Book.
