Creation Tools

Good Design

1. Fonts - choose a good one and keep it throughout the story. Use fancy font for dialog.

2. Background - Avoid a red background.  It is difficult to read.

3. Type - Include one to three sentences on one page. 


Ideas for Children's Book

1. Use simple sentences.

2. Create a likable character that younger students can relate.

3. Use illustrations to highlight your text.

4. "Show" don't "tell".

5. Think of your favorite children's books and see if you can gather any ideas.

6. Be original. Please do not copy and paste.
