Children’s books are a hot genre right now.  With libraries closed, more parents are purchasing children’s books; and more authors are trying their hand at writing a children’s book. These books are so short, how hard could they be to write? Actually, very hard. Or, at least, it is hard to write a book parents want to buy and children want to hear or read. 

As a parent of a two-year-old and an almost one-year-old, I have learned there are a lot of mediocre children’s books out there. So how can you write one that connects with children and parents? 

To help us answer this question, we have a special guest. 

She is an award-winning author and editor who writes for both adults and children. Her most recent book is “A Little Blue Bottle,” a picture book about grief.
