Here are the top ten articles for the Writing for Children Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!

1. Close 3rd Person POV
The close third person point of view gives readers the intimacy of the first person point of view, while allowing the writer more freedom than the first person POV does.

2. Passive Voice Defined
There are editors who will skim the first few pages of a manuscript and throw it aside if they see the passive voice because they believe the writer who uses the passive voice must be a novice. So it's important to learn what the passive voice is and how to avoid it.

3. Are Talking Animals Taboo?
Frogs wear business suits, bunnies attend school, and chickens devise elaborate escape plans from the coop. But is it appropriate to have these characters talk?

4. Make Your Story Mobile-Friendly
Points to Ponder as the Children's Market Expands into an Electronic Universe

5. Finding Inspiration
Great ways to find inspiration for writing your new children's book.

6. Markets for Children's Books
Children's books are sold everywhere. This article describes some great "outside the bookstore" markets.

7. Preparing a Picture Book Mockup
Preparing a mockup (also called a "dummy") of your picture book can help you determine whether your book is commercially viable.

8. When to Use Passive Voice in Fiction
Is it ever right to use the passive voice? Yes. There are several times when the use of passive voice actually speeds up the narrative.

9. Valentine's Gifts for the Children's Writer
Great Tips for Buying a Special Valentine's Day Gift for a Children's Writer!

10. Plot ~ Conflict
We need to have some quiet times between the car chases. Some times of normalcy. Otherwise the car chases feel normal and nothing feels exciting.
