How Kids Can Write and Illustrate Terrific Books

Have you ever wanted to write and illustrate your own original book? It all starts with YOU. Brainstorm for ideas, pick a genre, do a little research and it will begin to take shape. Sketch some characters, write a rough draft, get out the art supplies, and soon you’ll be the author and illustrator of a brand new book.
