Homeschool. Picture books | Write4Kids! Many newcomers believe it's simple to write picture books, but it actually requires a lot of skill to pack a story into a few words. If your dreams include writing a picture book, here are some tips to consider before you begin: * Keep it simple. You should be able to sum up the plot of your picture book in three sentences.

Not every detail, of course, but the broad strokes. Note: You’re concerned here on plot (the action of the story), rather than theme (the underlying message) . * Think in pictures. One way to think visually is to convey the character’s problem, and her efforts to solve that problem, in concrete, visual terms. Note: Some illustrations will span two facing pages, called a two-page spread. . * Maintain a childlike outlook. . * Get the Right Advice.

Sarkar. This education system nurtures the physical, mental and spiritual well being of the child through the direct experience of the harmonious blend of activities of yoga and meditation, artistic expressions, sustainable practices, intellectual exploration, development of ethical values and selfless service. We recognize the human being as an intellectual being with a core of spiritual wisdom; and we acknowledge that we evolve and are driven by the longing for greatness, which is the deeper underlying current of our lives.
