How many words are in a childrens picture book.
How many words per page lets say are in a childrens picture book (50, 25, 80, 100?)
I depends on the type of picture book. Most of the picture books published now have 32-pages (books printed earlier, like Dr. Seuss books, are much longer).Word length for fiction is up to 1500 words, with 1000 words as the average.Nonfiction in the picture book format can go up to age 10, 48 pages in length, or up to about 2000 words of text.Easy readers (or “easy-to-read”) can be 32-64 pages long, with 200-1500 words of text, occasionally going up to 2000 words. Books average 2-5 sentences per page.I have submitted manuscripts (although I’ve never had a book published), so I suggest that if you are writing a book for children, please check the publishers website for the Writer’s Guidelines or Submission Guidelines for exact requirements. The publisher’s love it when you do your homework first!Hope this helps.
what year did Theodor Seuss (dr.seuss) die.
Later yearsAfter the war, Geisel and his wife moved to La Jolla, California. Returning to children’s books, he wrote many works, including such favorites as If I Ran the Zoo, (1950), Horton Hears a Who! (1955), If I Ran the Circus (1956), The Cat in the Hat (1957), How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1957) and Green Eggs and Ham (1960). Although he received numerous awards throughout his career, Geisel won neither the Caldecott Medal nor the Newbery Medal. Three of his titles from this period were, however, chosen as Caldecott runners-up (now referred to as Caldecott Honor books): McElligot’s Pool (1947), Bartholomew and the Oobleck (1949), and If I Ran the Zoo (1950). Dr Seuss also wrote the musical and fantasy film The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T, which was released in 1953. The movie was a critical and financial failure, and Geisel never attempted another feature film. During the 1950s, he also published a number of illustrated short stories, mostly in Redbook Magazine. Some of these were later collected (in volumes such as The Sneetches and Other Stories or reworked into independent books (If I Ran the Zoo). A number have never been reprinted since their original appearances.In May 1954, Life magazine published a report on illiteracy among school children, which concluded that children were not learning to read because their books were boring. Accordingly, William Ellsworth Spaulding, the director of the education division at Houghton Mifflin who later became its Chairman, compiled a list of 348 words he felt were important for first-graders to recognize and asked Geisel to cut the list to 250 words and write a book using only those words. Spaulding challenged Geisel to “bring back a book children can’t put down.”  Nine months later, Geisel, using 236 of the words given to him, completed The Cat in the Hat. It was described as a tour de force by some reviewers[who?]—it retained the drawing style, verse rhythms, and all the imaginative power of Geisel’s earlier works, but because of its simplified vocabulary, it could be read by beginning readers. The Cat in the Hat and subsequent books written for young children achieved significant international success and they remain very popular today. In 2009 Green Eggs and Ham sold 540,366 copies, The Cat in the Hat sold 452,258 copies, and One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish (1960) sold 409,068 copies—outselling the majority of newly published children’s books.Geisel went on to write many other children’s books, both in his new simplified-vocabulary manner (sold as Beginner Books) and in his older, more elaborate style. The Beginner Books were not easy for Geisel and reportedly took him months to complete.On October 23, 1967, suffering from a long struggle with illnesses including cancer—as well as emotional pain over her husband’s affair with Audrey Stone Dimond—Geisel’s wife, Helen Palmer Geisel, committed suicide. Geisel married Dimond on June 21, 1968. Though he devoted most of his life to writing children’s books, Geisel had no children of his own. He would say, when asked about this, “You have ’em; I’ll entertain ’emDied, September 24, 1991(1991-09-24) (aged 87) … Mulberry Street in Springfield, made famous in Dr. Seuss’ first children’s book

How is Dr. Seuss a punk.
I have this project for English and it started out with a writing piece and now we’re doing an actual project about how our person is a punk … The more I did my writing part, the more I got confused about how Dr. Seuss really is a punk …When I say how is he a “punk”, I mean How did he go…
While at Dartmouth, Geisel was caught drinking gin with nine friends in his room, violating national Prohibition laws of the time. As a result, the school insisted that he resign from all extracurricular activities. He began submitting humorous articles and illustrations to Judge, The Saturday Evening Post, Life, Vanity Fair, and Liberty. One notable “Technocracy Number” made fun of the Technocracy movement and featured satirical rhymes at the expense of Frederick Soddy. Dr. Seuss was a veteran. Geisel’s early political cartoons show a passionate opposition to fascism, and he urged Americans to oppose it, both before and after the entry of the United States into World War II. His cartoons tended to regard the fear of communism as overstated, finding the greater threat in the Dies Committee and those who threatened to cut America’s “life line” to Stalin and Soviet Russia, the ones carrying “our war load”.Geisel’s cartoons also called attention to the early stages of the Holocaust and denounced discrimination in America against African Americans and Jews. Geisel himself experienced anti-semitism: in his college days, he was refused entry into certain circles because of a misperception that he was Jewish (he was in fact a practicing Lutheran).However, Geisel supported the Japanese American internment during World War II. His treatment of the Japanese and of Japanese Americans, whom he often failed to differentiate between, has struck many readers as a moral blind spot. On the issue of the Japanese, he is quoted as saying:But right now, when the Japs are planting their hatchets in our skulls, it seems like a hell of a time for us to smile and warble: “Brothers!” It is a rather flabby battle cry. If we want to win, we’ve got to kill Japs, whether it depresses John Haynes Holmes or not. We can get palsy-walsy afterward with those that are left.—Theodor Geisel, quoted in Dr. Seuss Goes to War, by Dr. Richard H. MinearCartoon of John Haynes Holmes. By Dr.SeussAfter the war, though, Geisel was able to end his feelings of animosity, using his book Horton Hears a Who (1954) as an allegory for the American post-war occupation of Japan, as well as dedicating the book to a Japanese friend.In 1948, after living and working in Hollywood for years, Geisel moved to La Jolla, California. It is said that when he went to register to vote in La Jolla, some Republican friends called him over to where they were registering voters, but Geisel said, “You, my friends, are over there, but I am going over here [to the Democratic registration].”In his booksThough Geisel made a point of not beginning the writing of his stories with a moral in mind, stating that “kids can see a moral coming a mile off”, he was not against writing about issues; he said “there’s an inherent moral in any story” and remarked that he was “subversive as hell”.Many of Geisel’s books are thought to express his views on a myriad of social and political issues: The Lorax (1971), about environmentalism and anti-consumerism; The Sneetches (1961), about racial equality; The Butter Battle Book (1984), about the arms race; Yertle the Turtle (1958), about anti-fascism and anti-authoritarianism; How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (1957), about anti-materialism; and Horton Hears a Who! (1954), about anti-isolationism and internationalism. Shortly before the end of the 1972–1974 Watergate scandal, in which United States president Richard Nixon resigned, Geisel converted one of his famous children’s books into a polemic. “Richard M. Nixon, Will You Please Go Now!” was published in major newspapers through the column of his friend Art Buchwald.Although Geisel never made any explicit or implicit mention of the abortion debate in his books, the line “A person’s a person, no matter how small!!” from Horton Hears a Who! has grown, over the objections of his widow, into widespread use on the pro-life side of the issue.
How many words does a publishable book need to have.
I’m writing a fantasy-romance, and I want to know about how big I should make it.So how many words for a book 200-300 pages need? 400-500? 600?Thank you…
Usually no publishers will take a book less than 50,000 words, however, there are a few exceptions out there.Personally, if you’re still writing it, you should NOT be focusing on the length of your book. Every good writer knows that if you focus on writing for a deadline or to meet a set number of words, pages, etc. that your writing won’t be nearly as good. Focus on the content inside your writing and making it as detailed as possible. If you’re confident in the strength of your writing, the length will come naturally.Why are you stressing over how many pages it needs to be, anyways? After all, if you want your book published, it all depends on if it’s paperback or hardcover. Hardcover books have fewer pages than paperback books because the size of each page is bigger, and therefore can fit more words.(P.S. – A good book is NEVER under sixty thousand words. Just an FYI. If you aren’t Dr. Seuss and you aren’t Stephenie Meyer, you better make it pretty drawn out, because those are the only two people that can get away with having short books.)

Dr. Seuss hidden messages.
Are there any hidden messages inside Dr. Seuss’s books? Some of them are easy to pick out, like The Lorax, which promotes the wrongs of habitat destruction and pollution. But some, like There’s a Wocket in My Pocket or Marvin K. Mooney will you Please Go Now!, or Fox in Socks are just rhyming words strung…
According to Wikipedia, (note: Dr. Seuss’s real last name is Geisel) ‘Many of Geisel’s books are thought to express his views on a myriad of social and political issues: The Lorax (1971), about environmentalism and anti-consumerism; The Sneetches (1961), about racial equality; The Butter Battle Book (1984), about the arms race; Yertle the Turtle (1958), about anti-fascism and anti-authoritarianism; How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

Does anyone know anything interesting about Dr. Seuss.
His name was Theodore Seuss Geisel – Seuss being his mother’s maiden name. He started using it as a pseudonym at university.One of his most popular books, Green Eggs and Ham, was the result of a bet (with his editor Bennett Cerf) that he could not write a book using only 50 words.He worked as an illustrator for advertising campaigns working on ads for companies like General Electric and NBCHis first wife committed suicide while suffering from a serious illness.Dr. Seuss actually said Yertle was a representation of Hitler.“Oh The Places You’ll Go” is the final Seuss book published before he passed away. Published in 1990, it sells about 300,000 copies every year because so many people give it to college and high school grads.In case you haven’t read “The Lorax,” it’s widely recognized as Dr. Seuss’ take on environmentalism and how humans are destroying nature. Loggers were so upset about the book that some groups within the industry sponsored “The Truax,” a similar book — but from the logging point of view“If I Ran the Zoo,” published in 1950, is the first recorded instance of the word “nerd.”During World War II he worked in the Animation Department of The US Army
