WRITING FOR TODDLERS

Fun and wonder are essential for toddler titles. It’s like painting with words. And you can be as silly as you like. The key is to include phrases that toddlers can join in with and lay clues so that they can enjoy guessing what will happen next.

WRITING FOR YOUNG READERS

The challenge of writing for young readers is to engage them using a limited vocabulary, while introducing new words in a context that will help the reader make sense of them. The trick is to make it seem easy.

WRITING INFORMATION FOR CHILDREN

Language can sometimes get in the way of learning. Short sentences, active phrasing and familiar vocabulary are the best way to deliver intriguing information or data. Structure is vital too. Information only sticks if there is a framework to hang it on.
