[close] This is a support group for those who read, write, or would like to write children's books. You don't have to be a children's book author to belong. You might just want to share a great book that you've read. You might just want some advice on a good read. For authors working on projects, this can include giving helpful advice, reviewing other author books (as long as it's non-reciprocal--see rules), asking for help, and everything else associated with children's books. Have fun!
