Shelves: nonfiction, writing
I love Jane Yolen, but have to issue a caveat that this book is rather dated. It was published in 1973. There is a lot of timeless content here that writers will appreciate ("Children's books ... change lives"), including a good survey of the different types of children's books. But there are also pages of info on market research that have been rendered meaningless by the Internet.

This book is a must if you want to learn about writing for children. Jane Yolen is the source that teachers use, may as well go to the source/
