Here are three steps to help get your manuscript into shape:
2) Better yet, share your manuscript with teachers to help determine its age group and the educational qualities in it.
3) Best of all, share it with children of the target age and take seriously what they suggest.
These are the people who helped make The Wedding Week a reality by funding its production on Kickstarter.

Happy holidays to all!
Thanks to your kind support, we have raised enough funds to print the first four editions of The Wedding Week!
This is Kio Global's first publication, illustrator Amber Cooper-Davies' first book, and author Chimaechi's first children's book. A lot of firsts.
If we can make it to £9,300 before midday (GMT) on Sunday 9th November, we can begin to fund development of The Wedding Week interactive eBook. This next step would add audio, extra content hopefully even animation to this project.
So how do you make a children's book? Well, we've talked a little bit about the story and the writer. Last week we introduced the illustrator of The Wedding Week.
Next, may I introduce the wonderful Zoe Waring, our designer. Zoe is a graphic designer who lays out the text and images in the book so that they flow together, are consistently beautiful, and are ready for the printer. She chooses the best fonts for the various languages and for our new readers. Zoe gets to choose the best illustrations for the book cover, as we see below. She's also a dab hand at illustrating, so she has a great understanding of the illustrator's work process.
Stay tuned to see Zoe's design in The Wedding Week.
Last month we advertised for an illustrator for Kio Global's first original children's book. With great delight, may I introduce Amber Cooper-Davies, a collage artist and member of the Drawn Chorus Collective. Amber cuts and layers various types of paper to make vibrant and dynamic illustrations.
Here's Amber's stop-motion animation of Rudyard Kipling's tale, How the Whale Got Its Throat. Stay tuned to see Amber's illustrations in Kio's forthcoming picture book, The Wedding Week.
