Childrens textbooks convey a broad spectrum of information by stimulating the fantasy, pleasing the sense and appealing to the spirit. Authors have the demanding job of writing tales that keep kids entertained and informed. One of the keys to a winning children's book author is to acquire the technique and skill that will stimulate a child's fantasy, keep him or her alert and move him or her to a better worldview.

A good author must also know how to develop, rework and criticize an idea, how to create a question letter to be posted, and how to know the story of the work.
