Jo Nesbo on writing for children

I really like what Jo Nesbo has to say on writing for children–especially that you don’t have to have children to write for children–you just have to remember your own childhood, your emotions, what it felt like. What do you think–do you agree? Disagree?

    As a Mother of two reluctant readers, I must say that this book has helped my two boys create an amazing interest in reading. “HELLS AQUARIUM” by Steve Alten, about the giant prehistoric shark Megalodon. Thanks to this book, my kids now read at will. http://www.amazon.com/Meg-Hells-Aquarium-Steve-Alten/dp/1935142046

    I absolutely agree! I am a first time writer/illustrator and do have two little boys but when I embarked on the writing and illustrating process not only did I use the experience of my own son but I dug very deep into my own emotions(some that I had buried for a long time!)Thanks for posting this. It is spot on. 🙂
