Turn Your “Mommy Song” Into A Children’s Book

Have you ever toyed with the idea of writing a children’s book?  I have recently met Jessica Chamberlain  through  my mom blog.  She is a proud mom of two and the author of  “Bright and White Brushing Your Teeth Can Be Fun.I was very inspired by her story, so I thought I would share it with you through my mom blog.  

Meet Jessica….

I grew up in a family of all girls so when I found out that I was going to be a new mom of a little boy I had a million of things run through my head…How will I teach him to go potty? Throw and catch a ball? Etc. One day when I was brushing my teeth I noticed that he was watching my every move and I could almost see his wheels turning, what is mommy doing and why? That night after going to bed, I woke up and just started writing a funny little song that I could use to help teach my son how to not only brush his teeth but also how to enjoy doing it. I would sing that song to him every time I brushed his teeth and he would laugh and want to do it all of the time. I decided to take that song and turn it in to a little book for other moms so they could use it as a tool to get their children excited about brushing their teeth as well. The book is called Bright and White Brushing Your Teeth Can Be Fun.

Now not only do I have the memory of singing and laughing with my son but also a book that I can keep forever and pass down to my grandchildren to show them that their daddy was always grandma’s inspiration to do something more.

Do you have a song or activity that you enjoy doing with your child?  Could you see yourself taking your idea to the next step?  How about journaling?  Write down your special song or activity and file it away for your children for when they are older.   Wouldn’t you like to have a journal from your parents from when you were younger?  I’m sure your parents had special activities they enjoyed doing with you.  Were these activities written down and passed on to your children?  If you’re fortunate enough to still have your mom or dad around, give them a call.  Ask them about your childhood, you never know what cute stories you may find.  Who knows, there may be a great story from your childhood that would make a great platform for a new children’s book!

    1. Jessica is going to come back later with a post on how to get your ideas moving towards a published product. Do you have a question for Jessica? If so, leave it here and she will reply to your comment on the mom blog.

  1. If you have an idea for a book I recomend looking into two options for self-publishing…Authorhouse or Createspace by Amazon. Both have great programs that can turn your ideas into a reality.

    1. Jessica,
      Thanks for coming back with more helpful hints for publishing books. We look forward to your future posts about transforming our book ideas into realities.
