I've read a few books on children's publishing, which are very good, but cover so much about with publishing that less is discussed on the actual writing. TWO-THIRDS of this book is about the writing itself, from word usage, point of view, audience, length, prose, and on and on. It gives the DETAILS one needs to prepare a manuscript for submission. I started reading it from the library, but had to buy my own copy so I could highlight and take notes.

I have read every book in the library on writing picture books. Many had some good points, but this one covered everything. I couldn't afford to take a class , but this was just as good if not, better.There are exercises after every chapter to be sure you retain the information covered. If my book gets published, I will add more to this review.
