Peggy Tibbetts is a writer, editor, and full member of SCBWIPeggy Tibbets' POV: The world of children’s book publishing can be confusing and frustrating. In this column, Tibbetts offers her point-of-view in response to writers’ burning questions about writing and illustrating for children. As an Author, Associate Producer, Managing/Contributing Editor and Columnist, Tibbets knows what she's talking about! Check out the many articles by Tibbets under the category Tibbetts' POV.

For my college graphics coursework I am designing and making a pop-up book and need to research how to make my product fully marketable. I was hoping you could answer these questions which would aid my specification points: What is the best size for a pop-up designed for children aged 4-6 years? Which themes are the most popular with girls in this age range? Which materials are the best to use for a pop-up book to ensure it withstands wear and tear? What appeals to parents who are choosing books for their children? Are cartoons or realistic drawings more popular? Which method of production is the best when making pop-up books? Thank you for your help?

Since I don't write or publish pop-up books, I don't have the answers to your questions.

I suggest that you consult your local children's librarian. While you're at the library, take a look at some recently published pop-up books. Make a note of the publishers and consider contacting the publisher with your questions.

Also, do a Google search for pop-up books and you will find links to more information. There's even a web site, Wonderful World of Pop-up and Animated Books, where you will find links to publishers and web sites.
