Elements of a Children’s Book:

  • Size: Trims at 8″ x 8″, saddle-stitched
  • Page Count: in 4-page increments, ideally 16, 20 or 24 pages plus a 4-page cover
  • Cover: Cover prints on a heavier paper than the interior pages and wraps around them as a 4-page cover. It prints on the outside front and back cover only. Inside covers are blank.
  • Main Book: The main body of the book must build in 4-page increments so it can wrap around the staples. Page 1 is a title page, and the last page of the book is also a stand-alone page.
  • Beginning with page 2, the book is laid out in 2-page spreads, with text on one page and a matching illustration on the facing page (this can vary left and right throughout the book, as desired).

Example: Jens and Maren Jorgensen

So, as an example, if you are producing a 20-page children’s book, you would have an illustration for the cover (could be 8″ x 8″ for just the front cover or ideally would have the image area extend to 16″ x 8″ so it wraps around the back cover as well).

Page 1 would be your title page, with the book title, any credits you want to add, and probably a piece of or reduced-size version of one of your illustrations.

Pages 2 and 3 would include text of the story on one page and a matching illustration on the facing page, and that pattern would continue through pages 4-5, 6-7, 8-9, 10-11, 12-13, 14-15, 16-17, and 18-19.

We could use page 20 (the last page) in a lot of different ways to add information, as you desire. In the example shown it is used as the final part of the story.

So, for that 20-page book, you would supply artwork, as described above, for the covers, and then 9 text blocks with 9 matching illustrations. If the book is 16 pages plus cover, you would provide 7 text blocks and 7 matching illustrations. If your book is 24 pages plus cover, you would provide 11 text blocks and 11 matching illustrations.

As noted above, each illustration would essentially be square in shape, at 8″ x 8″.

Text should be provided in Microsoft Word or a comparable software packages, with indications for the order of those text block within the children’s book.

Illustrations or other artwork should be supplied as .JPG files if possible, with specific instructions on which illustration goes with which text block. We are able to scan your artwork for you (for a fee) if you supply it in hard copy instead of digital format.
