5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for any children's book writer or illustator
As a children's book author and editor, I know that no one understands picture books better than Uri Shulevitz, and no one is more articulate about how they work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Digital?
A bit dated. Very disappointed there was no mention of any digital production techniques or even self publishing possibilities. Needs an update.
The other stuff is great.

This review is from: Writing with Pictures: How to Write and Illustrate Children's Books (Paperback)
As a children's book author and editor, I know that no one understands picture books better than Uri Shulevitz, and no one is more articulate about how they work. Most books about writing for children focus on young novels or on straightforward picture book stories. This book inspires you to think beyond those predictable formats and instead embrace the poetry of a good picture book, the magic of a good collaboration between text and art which is necessary whether you are working on a story book or a concept book or a nonfiction book. An intelligent and inspiring guide to the art of good bookmaking.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Foundation for Creating Children's Books, Jan. 27 2000
This review is from: Writing with Pictures: How to Write and Illustrate Children's Books (Paperback)
I found this very readable book to be very well thought out in its explanation of what makes for a successful children's book. It has the most examples of illustrations of any book on writing children's books I have seen, with many illustrations showing why some methods work and others fail. Uri is vary clear and benevolent in his sharing the princeiples for successfully creating a book for children. It was like being in workshop. With this book I feel prepared to pursue creating a kids' book!
