I have to try to entertain and keep a young child’s attention. That means making the story relatable, humorous. and creating an engaging character.
Hopefully they will laugh, cry and feel for the character as he faces challenges and dilemmas similar to theirs.
The illustration need to be colorful and bright and make the story come alive!
I love writing for this age group and testing out my stories on young ones before I publish them.
They inspire and guide me to learn just what makes a great children’s picture book!

Kally Mayer is the oldest of 7 children and has always loved writing and poetry. She recalls her mother being concerned that she read so much that she never came out of her room.
Working as a Youth worker with special needs children Kally has been around children her whole life. She really enjoys entertaining them with her silly rhymes and made up stories.

Kally believes that literacy is an important indicator of the success of your child and entertaining them while reading is key. Gone are the days of Dick and Jane. The more fun you and your child have, the more you will hook them into reading!
I love making up stories and especially rhyming verses!! Bedtime is a huge issue for little ones and I have personally struggled with my own children as well as my 2 new granddaughters!!
Having a monster go through the same fears of the dark and going to sleep puts a light-hearted, humorous slant on the issue that children will be able to relate to.
They will be anxious to know how the adorable little monster finally solves his problem and is able to close his eyes and get some sleep!
