Children’s books

Book design for children's books, hardcover and softcover

From beautifully illustrated picture books for young children to chapter books for older children, children’s books are a delight for children and adults alike.

Children’s picture books often include a printed hardcover and dust jacket, and sometimes colored or printed endsheets too. From cover to cover, the words, illustrations, and colors work together seamlessly to create a book for children to treasure.

Books for older children have fewer or no illustrations and they introduce children to chapters. They usually have larger type than adult books, and the chapters are not too long.

To learn how I can help you with your upcoming children’s book, please visit my Services page. Or, feel free to email or call me to schedule a complimentary 30-minute consultation. We’ll discuss your book and answer any questions you may have, and get to know each other a bit before deciding whether to work together. There is no obligation.
