What age are the books for?
Self-publishing for students and kids is a great tool at any age, from elementary to middle school and high school. Our format of one page of writing and one illustration is the perfect way to showcase talents in full-color. Although students in higher grades typically read smaller size books with no illustrations, they love to be presented with this large hardcover keepsake of their work.
What materials should children use to color, draw or create their pictures?
For best results, we recommend using markers, but children can also use crayons or colored pencils that are not too light. Please avoid pastels and paints.
What if a child is too young to write?
Teachers or parents can ask their child what they would like to say, then write it for them, or even write their words in dotted lines they can trace.
What if a child draws or colors outside of the boxes?
Sometimes our imagination spills outside the lines:) Just keep in mind that the only part of the drawings that will be in the finished book will be inside the boxed area.
