Considerations When Writing Books for Children

When writing for children, it's important that authors understand the age group classifications and the content expectations for those age groups. A children's picture book, for example, is quite different from a middle-grade chapter book. Each category of children's books has recommended page counts, word counts, language usage, subject matter, and more. It's also important that authors understand what type of content will resonate with their target readers. Whether it's fiction or nonfiction, if the content is too advanced, too preachy, or too dull the readers will lose interest.
