Review
The Complete Guide to Screenwriting for Children's Film & Television, will be recognized as a canonical work on children's content writing.  Aviram's intensive and inclusive research has led to the writing of a must-read book for anyone who is involved or intends to be involved in writing for children, and for anyone who is interested in children and their interactions with the media.  This book provides a deep foundation full of experience and rich in examples, script analysis, studies, anecdotes, and love for the field and for the children themselves.

From the Author
"Draw me a sheep", demands the Little Prince of Antoine de Saint Exupéry at the beginning of his book.  In my opinion, that is the essence of being children's content writers -- to use the best of our skills in order to create high quality content that will directly serve the tastes and needs of our young audiences.  And in order to do that, we must take a step back and see the world through children's eyes.  We must become the children we once were.  And as Antoine de Saint Exupéry writes in the Introduction of his book; "All grown-ups were once children--although only very few of them remember it."
