Writing for Little Ones: Ages Baby to Seven
Writing for young readers is a special challenge. It requires a different way of thinking about children: what they believe and know and what they don’t yet know. It involves seeing the world from their unique perspective, even understanding how being little alters their perception of the world. To write for children the author must entertain and guide, and balance between adult communications skills and the child’s world; develop and polish your own work for very young children.
