Have you ever written or worked on a children's book?

A friend of mine wants to make a children's book. He is not very good at drawing or illustrating so he would like me to do that part of it for him. He will write the story. I have no experience with this. I am not even sure if I qualify to make something for kids as my art style doesn't seem like it would be enjoyable for them.

How do you know what style is best?

The best way to go about this is to look at other books. If you have a local book store, just go browse children's books. Snap a few pictures for inspiration or buy a few if they are not too expensive. You would be surprised by the variety of art in children's books!

If I could draw, I would do it! I know how to write and I think it would be fun to make children's books, especially if they inspire a child to grow up to be a kind and decent human being.

A friend of mine has. I am not sure if he ever went through and pended it for publication or not. I am sure if he had, I would have known about it. Either way, he did what was mentioned. Pulling inspiration from other books.

I want to make one but I have lackluster art skills. I feel like I could write one up really well though. I should give it a try just for the heck of it and see what I could come up with.

You would have a difficult trial trying to create content suitable for children. I think you want to use simple yet clear emotions and ideas. Children tend to feel strong emotions but they're firm. Like, they're happy, or sad, not ecstatic or dejected. So you would focus on expressing these pure but simple emotions.
