The More the Better...Help!

Postby The_Mad_Ink3r » Mon Jul 07, 2014 4:07 pm

I would like to do a children's book, so that when Summer (my daughter) gets old enough she can read it before bedtime. Any suggestions on what theme I should do?

This might be better in the children's forum, since they know what they are doing.

But I'd suggest reading a lot of children's books and work from there. You aren't going to feel invested in a story if we come up with it for you, nor will it feel that special to you.

something that summer is interested in.

When William Goldman's daughters asked him to write a story, he asked what it should be about. one daughter said a princess, the other daughter said a bride. Hence, the Princess Bride was born.

that's a wonderful thing to think of doing!... will be something she'll surely cherish her whole life and most likely hand down to her own children...

i'm a mother of 7 [6 girls], grandmom of 19 and great-grandma of 2 [at last count], i've written children's books for a chicago publisher and i mentor many aspiring p/b writers, so if i can be of any help along the way, just drop me a line...

how old is your little girl now?

love and hugs, maia

given that due dates are rarely accurate down to the day, she may be born on my own birthday, sept 14... in any case, prepare yourself for the pleasures of raising a virgo!

hope you're playing beautiful music in your waking hours... with one of my children, i had sad proof that babies in the womb are aware of what goes on outside their cozy nest and can even hear voices, sense tension, so providing a peaceful, lovely-sounding/feeling environment during this last trimester can make a major difference to your child's life...

looking forward to hearing from you... hugs to you both, maia
