Children's Books

It all begins in childhood ... our story. We all have a story to tell - our personal journey as experienced from our unique perspective as the observer in this reality. Most people write their story to heal and help others through their own experiences.

Books can be healing and teaching tools for the author and the reader.

Not everyone can write a novel, as it takes years and only flows easily to those with writing skills. For others, a short children's book, often animated for film, becomes a great vehicle to heal one's inner child, who struggled with issues now overcome.

A book can stand alone or become part of an ongoing series each teaching a different lesson.

Children learn in many ways, much like adults, especially in the Age of Technology, but a book, even an ebook, can become part of their library of language, knowledge, and light.

The mind of a child, or adult, is curious about whatever ... and needs to feed that empty well with whatever they came here to learn and take away with them at the end of time.

The new generation of evolving children's literature goes to books that provide tactile stimulation, pop-up venues, sounds, and an endless way of providing children with knowledge in ways that are entertaining.

Though the youngest child may be fixated on moving objects, a book placed in front of them will hold their attention and stimulate areas of the brain linked to pattern development and early recognition of letters and characters.

Children like to turn pages, even on an iPad. I bought my grandson, age 5, a V Reader and now he reads. He handles it much like his dad's iPad and is proud of what can do.

Did you ever watch a young child pretend they know how to read? Much of their world is pretend anyway, so why not reading.

The more you help and guide a child, the faster they go, but remember to never push a child or compare him/her to others. As an adult moving through the evolution of consciousness, you know that one can only understand when ready.

Writing a children's book

Research the number of pages most books contain as well as the formula needed as all books follow a formula. The Internet might help you with this or perhaps a writing class. Think about characters and illustrations. Make notes and start by creating a first draft. After that your story will either flow or not. Everything around you will seem to inspire you and you will write with passion. When complete the book you need to determine your target audience - the demographic of the children who will read and enjoy your book. Next decided to the name of your book and search to see if the title already exists. Next copyright your book and read up on the endless ways to publish it. Good luck.
