I have a manuscript about ready for me to work up a proposal. It’s another children’s book, and the largest hurdle, as always, will be image ideas. What amuses me some is how I have my husband read it through for theological concerns and then my oldest daughter for readability. 🙂 This time she had me add back a few words I’d crossed out! LOL Not all but some.
She’s a great comfort and resource to me. She’s not my targeted age group anymore, however, and I can hardly think of her as typical of her own age either. She’s . . . so smart, conversant in “Mary speak”, and such a good reader.
My oldest is nine-years-old and I feel like my “easy audience” of young children is not longer at my fingertips. 🙂 Ah, parenthood! Ah, growth for parent and child!
If you have any ideas or insights to help me determine early manuscript readers, let me know.
Wishing you well and a very merry continuation of the Christmas season!
