Shulevitz, Uri. This guide (originally published in 1985) introduces the visual approach to writing children's books, an approach which can help a writer release a flow of images and avoid wordiness. The aim of the guide is to teach the fledgling writer/illustrator to ask important questions about the structure of the intended book (and to find the answers) and to show him or her how to cope with the mechanical problems of making a book. The guide is divided into four parts: (1) Telling the Story; (2) Planning the Book; (3) Creating the Pictures; and (4) Preparing for Reproduction.
