Book Prunelle is an exciting and fun new way for kids to learn and have their minds opened about subjects that don’t tend to be tackled anywhere else. We want to help parents save time while keeping the kids safe. But today we thought we’d give you a little treat! So let’s take a sneak peek behind the curtain and find out how we go about creating this ever-expanding online library that can be accessed by kids anywhere and at any time. It’s not as simple as just writing a story and sticking it online – there’s so much more to it and plenty of other steps that help ensure that our library is filled up with amazing books that kiddos and their parents will love! So, without further ado, let’s jump right on into it!
Coming up with a story
First, we identify an issue that we want to tackle. This might be an environmental issue (such as pollution or global warming) or a social issue (such as obesity, racism or disability). We then brief our extremely talented writing team to create an amazing story that deals with the subject. For the purposes of this blog post let’s select the issue of racism. Our writers will do a little research on the topic and find out why it happens and how widespread the problem is. They dig deep into the issue and then craft an awesome story with a super important message. Of course, as these stories are for kids it’s important that they don’t get too heavy and bogged down in the nasty details, but they break it down and present it in a child-friendly and easy to manage way. That way all your kiddos can still enjoy the stories while learning valuable lessons from the messages that we’re trying to get across.
Our editing process
Next up is the editing process. Often stories need to be cut down or have certain parts rewritten or expanded upon, and it is now that the stories really start to take shape. Sometimes editing can be brutal and things can quickly get the chop if they don’t serve the story, but this is all part of the process of the stories being molded into their child-friendly final form. Once the words are all finalized and ready to go we come to the next big thing: illustrations! They say a picture is worth a thousand words and that’s why it’s so important that we get the art for our books just right! Our artists take what is written on the page, interpret it and create something beautiful that helps tell the story and bring the words to life.
One last step!
Then the last step is to get the story into the hands of kiddos and their parents! We format it and make it look great on the app, and after final approval, we can finally release it to the public! And hey presto! There you have it. From start to finish – initial idea to fully illustrated and edited final product – this is our process for creating a good quality online library for the kids of today! And the awesome thing is that kids love Book Prunelle and the stories we offer in our library. We are getting amazing feedback and both parents and kids are getting excited about the fun stories and meaningful messages, and we love to hear that! That’s how we know we’ve done our job properly!
