You're never too old to read a children’s book. Or make one.
We think making a children’s book is a great way to get in touch with your inner child and free your creativity in unexpected ways. You don’t have to have everything figured out when you start. Maybe you just have the kernel of an idea. Or a few funny sentences or quick sketches. The important thing is to let your imagination run wild. Free the book (and the kid) within.
