If you’re reading this article, it’s likely that you have a story idea going on in your head or you have already made up stories to tell your children at bedtime. But from the idea to the creation of the story, it is necessary to accommodate our thoughts and transfer them to paper (or our word document). That’s why we provide a guide with the types of children’s book stories that they enjoy the most.
It is very important to consider the age of the children for whom we are writing, as each age Target will have different needs, such as the amount of illustrations, as well as the amount and type of writing used.
Let’s discuss the main types of children’s book stories
1- BEDTIME STORIES 😴 ⭐️
Do you usually make up your own stories to get your kids to sleep? These stories often have endearing characters that both you and your children love. Kids are the best critics, so if your kids love your stories, other children are likely to love them, too.
2- CHILDHOOD STORIES 👧 👦
With the advent of technology, our children’s childhood is very different from ours. Sometimes our kids are curious about how things used to be, so you can turn your childhood experiences into adorable stories that kids will love.
3- CERTAIN NEEDS 🥦 🥕 🚽 🛁
Children’s books have great power and influence on children’s learning. They may even help them meet certain specific needs as they grow. For the little ones, there are books to learn how to use the potty, as well as to learn how to eat more vegetables. There is a whole world of possibilities to encourage them to do new things that are challenging.
4- HOBBIES 🎸 🎨 ⛸ 🤹♀️
Does your child have a particular hobby, interest, or passion that you can’t find in other books? Use this opportunity to write about them! There are likely to be many more children interested in the same activity and eager to read a book about it.
5- OLDIES 📺
If a topic has proven to be very successful over and over again, why not use it? People do this all the time, especially in novels and thrillers. You could do the same in children’s books.
As you can see, these are just a few story ideas and opportunities that we are presenting and it’s up to you to decide when to start writing!
You must also think about who ends up buying your book…The parents! So, think about what kind of book would help them, what they want their children to learn, and what kind of values they want to instill in them.
