Over the past three years, I have had the pleasure of speaking with hundreds of gradeschoolers about my Maury C. Moose Children’s Book Series. Along the way I have been asked many questions, ranging from “What made you want to write a book?” to “Can you dance?”
I have started noticing some trends in the questions I receive from young kids. They too want to write books and they want to know how it is done. However, they aren’t wondering about the things you may think.
Here are a few things that children think about when writing a book:
- Is it fun?
- Do I need scissors?
- Can I write about school?
- Can I do it with a friend?
- Who is the youngest author ever?
- Can my dog be in my book?
- How many books can I write?
Tomorrow I am going to continue this conversation and look at the list of things children are not thinking about when writing a book.
