Rhyming Picture Books: The Write Way
A Children’s Writer Insider Guide from Mentors for Rent

by Lisa Bullard & Laura Purdie Salas
Kindle E-Book

Rhyming picture books often become childhood favorites and sometimes bestsellers. But many editors claim they won’t even consider a manuscript in rhyme. So what’s going on? The fact is, these engaging read-alouds appear deceptively simple, but they are actually extremely difficult to write well. Most of the submissions that editors receive are ineffective and not ready for publication—so Bullard and Salas, two writers who have both had rhyming picture books successfully published, put together this practical collection of tips to help other writers with their rhyming stories. The guide may prove helpful for any writer who hopes to make his or her rhyming picture book manuscript more salable.

Over the years, we’ve coached hundreds of other picture book writers, offering them feedback about how they can make their manuscripts stronger and more marketable in today’s competitive publishing environment. There are 10 key concerns that we end up addressing over and over again when we do picture book critiques. Many manuscripts have two or three of these problems in place—and almost every manuscript we critique has at least one of them! So we have focused on those 10 issues in this series of short essays. Each essay highlights one of the 10 key questions you will want to ask yourself about your manuscript. And if you find that your answer is “Yes—that is a problem for me,” we offer easy-to-apply writing tips to help you address that concern in your revisions.
