Got a question about writing books for kids?

The faculty of the Institute of Children’s Literature is waiting to answer your question! Ask it RIGHT HERE.


I’ve been watching my nieces learning to read. They study the pictures. They beg for more, and readily cuddle up while we read together. I remember my then three-year-old son memorizing his favorite books and pretending to read (of course, we thought him a genius!) So how can you create great picture books with the identifying characteristics that will magnetize your readers and draw them to your work, again and again?

Great Read!

"This is another great read from [ICL]... When I saw this particular one, I grabbed it immediately ... This book is a great addition to a writer's (whether published or not) shelf ... I highly recommend their writing courses. You receive feedback on your work from published authors. You will be encouraged but also pushed to make your story from good to great."
