I need a children's book writer, to write a story for 3-6 year olds. The book will be around 15-20 pages long, and will be in picture book format.
We are inspired by the books at www.lostmy.name. We think while the illustration and customization is done in a clever way, the story can be improved to serve a purpose of empowering children's imagination and fostering creativity.
We are very much open to suggestions around themes, and improvements of the concept. The below elements are crucial for us:
-The main hero should be customizable
-While lostmy.name customizes the story based on a child's name, we don't think that creates the best learning experience. Therefore, we are looking for ways/ideas to create a book/series of books that are fun to read, but also inspiring for kids.
-The main customer is the parents, therefore, the books that we will create need to play into the desire for parents to improve their kids' imagination / learning skills.
Other factors that we thought about / examples that we considered are:
-Including more than 1 character in customization (like the parents/ best friend of the child)
-Having a series of books focused on girls' empowerment, where the main character is a scientist, doctor, astronaut etc.
-Having a series of books focused on teaching kids things like geography (Main character in Paris, main character in Rome etc.)
-Having a series of books that are similar to "choose your own adventure" books (if you want main character to do XYZ, go to page 4, if you want her to do ABC, go to page 3)
