"All grown-ups were once children--although only very few of them remember it." Antoine de Saint Exupéry

I likely will never be a screenwriter, but a great resource for anyone who wants to become a screenwriter for children’s television will find the book “The Complete Guide to Screenwriting for Children's Film & Television” helpful. It is also a good read for anyone who likes writing for children in general. Writing for children is a wonderful way to let your creativity make a difference with children, either by educating them or making them happy.

The book enables the reader to understand children, like how they grasp humor and how to reach this target audience. As an adult, there is so much that we take for granted. It’s easy to forget that children are on a different level. The book is well organized and detailed. It is good at explaining children’s cognitive abilities and explains the audience for which you’ll be writing. It contains a wealth of information. Techniques, like rhyming, repetition, and rhythmic patterns, are explained.

The author, Motti Aviram, is an experienced director and content editor of children’s television. He is also a senior lecturer at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and design and Israel’s School of Screenwriting.

 “The Complete Guide to Screenwriting for Children’s Film & Television” is a great tool. It is available as a Kindle ebook on amazon.com.

I was provided a free copy of the book in return for my honest review.
