  • hmmm write about some cute animal and a yummy treat
    have you ever heard of when u give a mouse a cookie?
    you can't go wrong
    kids love both=]

    orrr you could do it about some cute character finding a destination and meets friends and experiences fun and exciting things on the trip there
    sort of like dora the explorer=]
    hope this helps!

  • Write a book about pregnancy for a child who is going to have a new baby brother or sister. You could write about how "mommy is feeling each day",  explain pregnancy to a child, things to buy & how the sibling could help choose items, what a big brother or sister can do that a baby can't. Basically write a book to help the sibling prepare for a new baby.  Good luck!  Maybe you could even publish it.

  • I love writing children's stories...I wish I could actually get someone to care though... Anyway, back to the point, I like to write about my son and the funny things he does, his little quirks, then I exaggerate them. For instance when my son was about 2 he was always saying that he was awesome or great, so I wrote a story about how his teacher would tell him good job and he would so no awesome and how I would say to him you are so good and he would say no I'm the best! See if you can baby sit a child around the age of 3-4 and just watch them. I hope that helps you. It always does me,.

  • I wrote one about my grandson's "adventure" in the living room. He was about 15 months old and was discovering how to climb the "mountain" ( couch) to view out into the world through the picture window. He would crawl into his "cave" (the space under the coffee table.) and through the "tunnel" behind the couch (between couch and wall. Kids see things far more differently than we do. Just get in the floor and use your imagination. I wrote the story but have not published it yet so you are welcome to use the ideas in your book if you want. Each room can be a new adventure which leaves room for sequels !!!!!
