Ah yes, we love nothing better than a cool drink on a hot day and many kids love nothing better than setting up a lemonade stand to sell us that cool drink. From a child’s point of view, it is a way to make money and fun doing it. From a parent’s point of view, it may be fun, but it takes time to ensure all the right stuff is there for the child to be a success.
Writing for children can be a little like that lemonade stand … for both the child and the parent. It takes a lot of ingredients to make the story a success. Understanding how to reach your target audience, how to sell to them once you know who they are, and how to beat your competition on product and price. Try having a little fun while trying to decide how to make a profit.
