Formatting a story

Hello friends,

Some of you may remember for years back (wow, years... really it's been years) a short story I posted about a Super Pickle. Well I have finally found someone to illustrate it and help me turn it into a children's book.

But where the problem is coming, on my end at least, is that fact that I don't really know how to take the story and format it into a version that is good for a children's book.

I am think that it will be for children around 5 to 7 ish and looking for a format that is like 1 page of writing 1 page of illustration, side by side.

But I am just not sure how to split the story up. I can write fairly well when my mind is put to it, but I don't really know the ins and outs of something like this very well and looking for a little guidance would be nice.

Hi, Seed - I don't know from children's stories/books, so this is just a bump up for your question.
Good to see you.

If you don't get enough help on line you might go to a big book store and see how the other guys and gals did it.

Good to see you Osso, and Edgar!

Thanks for the bump!

Edgar I have done that, and I have seen some good books to judge off of, but the part I'm having issues with is figuring out where to make the break points in my story.

Oh, I missed that part. You might need a prefeshunal editor.
