Jessie, while I don't disagree with your 5 points made above, I do want to add a non-illustrator author's perspective here.

Thanks for replying, Marsha, and it's GREAT to know non-illustrator authors still get their picture book manuscripts published, it's just that the current preference for author-illustrators can be disconcerting sometimes. I'm not really mad (anymore...) just had to speak to it.

Thank for some food for thought & interesting insight. I definitely commiserate with Taurean, it can be vey interrsting to try to leave room for an illustrator. Good to know it can be done.

Thanks for explaining how dynamic illustrations can help kids make the connections between the words and the pictures. I want my kids to have a better understanding of how to read and understand what they are seeing. I'll get them some dynamic illustrations that they can learn and grow from.

Thank you for putting this out there. I agree with your opinion and I hope more people would come to agree with this as well.

Fantasy children’s books are a great theme that will excite children and, at the same time, are easy to follow. Plus, you can add more creative and interesting illustrations.
Great information. As far as I might be concerned, the most amazing aspect of kids' books is the significant statements that typify a whole book in a sentence or two. Nobody will at any point concede to the "best" quotes, yet here are a portion of my top picks!
