Buy it. Read it. Refer to it. Keep updating your notes on it. Know that a good part of the information became outdated prior to publication, not because the editors were lazy, but because people move around in the industry constantly.
Updated annually, early in the year.Aiken, Joan, THE WAY TO WRITE FOR CHILDREN, St. Martin's Press, NY, 1982

Bicknell, Treld Pelkey and Felicity Trotman, ed., HOW TO WRITE AND ILLUSTRATE CHILDREN'S BOOKS AND GET THEM PUBLISHED, North Light Books, Cincinnati, 1988
I enjoyed it because it does (I think) a great overview of children's book writing and publishing. Pretty much covers a lot of areas in the business. I don't know what others think about it, but it taught me a lot.Cameron, Eleanor, THE SEED AND THE VISION: ON THE WRITING AND APPRECIATION OF CHILDREN'S BOOKS
Epstein, Connie C., THE ART OF WRITING FOR CHILDREN, Archon Books, Hamden, CT, 1991.
I particularly appreciated this book's look at children's writing from a historical perspective forward. The writer prompts readers to question their motivations and then breaks down elements of writing for serious discussion. The senses, setting, dialogue, and plot are all addressed in detail as are genre differences and market considerations. The author assumes the reader is intelligent and serious, not just surfing for a hobby.Fitz-Randolph, Jane and Barbara Steiner, HOW TO WRITE FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG ADULTS: A HANDBOOK, Johnson Books, Boulder CO, 1987.

ABOUT THEIR WORK,
MEET THE AUTHORS AND ILLUSTRATORS: CREATORS OF FAVORITE CHILDREN'S BOOKS TALK ABOUT THEIR WORK, Vol. 2, Scholastic.
Although intended for student use, this is also of interest to adults interested in the field. Contains short profiles of many of the top talents in the field, along with exercises to stimulate student involvement.Lanes, Selma G., THE ART OF MAURICE SENDAK, Abradale Press, 1993.
An inspirational biography with many beautiful illustrations.Lipson, Eden Ross, THE NEW YORK TIMES PARENT'S GUIDE TO THE BEST BOOKS FOR CHILDREN, Times Books, 1991.
A valuable reference on the classics and some more recent books.Litowinsky, Olga, WRITING AND PUBLISHING BOOKS FOR CHILDREN IN THE 1990'S: THE INSIDE STORY FROM THE EDITOR'S DESK, Walker and Co., NY: 1992.
Terrific for new writers, and also writers who have published one or two books.
Packed with street-wise information and has the added benefit of being a fun read. The book has a strong editor point of view. It's message seems to be: `Writing for children is a business. Enjoy your art, but wear both hats if you expect to succeed.'Marcus, Leonard S. A CALDECOTT CELEBRATION: SIX ARTISTS AND THEIR PATHS TO THE CALDECOTT MEDAL, Walker and Co., NY, 1998.
Profiles of Robert McCloskey, Marcia Brown, Maurice Sendak, William Steig, Chris Van Allsburg and David Weisner.Marcus, Leonard S., ed. DEAR GENIUS: THE LETTERS OR URSULA NORDSTROM, Harper Collins, 1998.
Mogilner, Alijandra, CHILDREN'S WRITER'S WORD BOOK.
This hard-back book with the neon pink (like Barbie-pink on steroids) cover includes word lists, separated by grade level; a thesaurus, synonyms with grade levels, and some global words of wisdom. I don't use it religiously but rather to get a feel for where the age-level is heading.Paterson, Katherine, GATES OF EXCELLENCE: ON READING AND WRITING BOOKS FOR CHILDREN, Dutton Children's Books, NY, 1988.

Seuling, Barbara, HOW TO WRITE A CHILDREN'S BOOK & GET IT PUBLISHED, Charles Scribner's Sons, NY, 1984. Revised and expanded, 1991.
This is probably the most complete of these books and has a solid reference section, which includes book lists for each age level. I read it in one setting and then re-read it twice by chapter.Shaughnessy, Susan, WALKING ON ALLIGATORS, Harper Collins, 1993.
Short, pithy meditations for writers.Shepard, Aaron, THE BUSINESS OF WRITING FOR CHILDREN, Shepard Publications, 2000.
Shulevitz, Uri, WRITING WITH PICTURES: HOW TO WRITE AND ILLUSTRATE CHILDREN'S PICTURE BOOKS, Watson-Guptill, 1985.
Absolutely essential. Deals with the structure of stories, the relationship between illustration and text, and many other important concepts.Wagner, Jenny, ON WRITING BOOKS FOR CHILDREN, Allen & Unwin Pty Ltd, 1992.
Lots of excellent, well-presented information.Woolley, Catherine (Jane Thayer), WRITING FOR CHILDREN, Plume, 1989.
This book is written with a chatty style, discussing the writing process, expectations, and various types of children's books. She points to many examples from published books to illustrate her points. This may be a good place to begin when starting and revisit upon switiching to a new type of writing. . . say from picture book to chapter book.Wyndam, Lee (Revised by Arnold Madison), WRITING FOR CHILDREN & TEENAGERS, 3RD EDITION, Writers Digest Books, 1988.
This is an arts, business, and industry type of book, very full in scope. It includes chapters on writing, preparing an ms for submission, marketing, contracts, genres, research, and non-fiction writing. However, it may be distinguished most for its chapter about playwriting.Yolen, Jane, GUIDE TO WRITING FOR CHILDREN, The Writer, Inc., Boston, 1989.

Zinsser, William, ed., WORLDS OF CHILDHOOD: THE ART AND CRAFT OF WRITING FOR CHILDREN, Houghton Mifflin Co., Boston, MA, 1990.
This book features discussions of the works of six children's writers, their perspectives, history and motivations. It's a more inspirational and art-oriented book, not a way to learn about the market. I like being inspired, so it made me happy.
Excellent--very practical.Balkin, Richard, A WRITER'S GUIDE TO CONTRACT NEGOTIATIONS, Writer's Digest Books, 1992.

The title is pretty self-explanatory. I used the book to get a feel for what a query letter should look like but also found it helpful to ask published writers for examples.Goldberg, Natelie, WILD MIND: LIVING THE WRITER'S LIFE, Bantam Books, NY, 1990.

Mandell, Judy, BOOK EDITORS TALK TO WRITERS, John Wiley & Sons, 1995.
Offers a Q&A of authors of various genres with only one featuring a children's literature editor (Stephanie Lurie of S&S). I read all them because I thought it would provide some insight into the brain set of the editor community. However, you could pick it up and skim the three-page SL interview, adding a block of her perspective to your business side.McCloud, Scott, UNDERSTANDING COMICS: THE INVISIBLE ART, Harper Collins, New York, 1994.
Although people may not want to admit it, there's a lot in common between childrens books and comics. Both involve telling stories with pictures.Mundis, Jerrold, BREAK WRITER'S BLOCK NOW!, St. Martin's Press

Naming characters didn't seem difficult to me until I tried it. This is a little paperback book in the $5-6 range that includes contemporary and non-majority culture names while giving a slice of information on each.Ueland, Brenda, IF YOU WANT TO WRITE: A BOOK ABOUT ART, INDEPENDENCE AND SPIRIT, Graywolf Press, St. Paul, 1978 (10th edition - 1997).

Handy, spiral bound reference. I have many others (Chicago, AP, etc.), but this is what I reach for first.Vorhaus, John, THE COMIC TOOLBOX: HOW TO BE FUNNY EVEN IF YOU'RE NOT, Silman-James Press, 1994.
Although ostensibly about humor writing, this is one of the best books about any kind of writing, or almost any creative activity, I've ever seen. It's also written in a humorous style, making it very enjoyable and worthwhile reading.Welty, Eudora, ONE WRITER'S BEGINNINGS, Belknap Press, 1995.

Guptill, Arthur, DRAWING IN PEN AND INK, Watson-Guptill.
The original, now out of print and scarce, is the definitive text, and a fantastic collection of illustrations.

It offers illustrations and samples. The book is targeted to parents, teachers, etc. But I think it would be helpful to writers interested in writing about Indians whose primary related education comes from Hollywood, especially non-Natives new to researching the peoples. It's only shortcoming is that it fails to address books with a contemporary focus, possibly because there are excruciatingly few of them.Stangl, Jean, HOW TO GET YOUR TEACHING IDEAS PUBLISHED: A WRITER'S GUIDE TO EDUCATIONAL PUBLISHING, Walker and Co, 1994.
