I am not an export how to make a manuscript for children’s books but so far I learned from the Internet, a book would have 15 scenes normally because 8 sheets of papers are used for printing to be folded to make a book. 8 x 2 = 16 and one sheet for front and back cover of a book, so 15 scenes.

For instance, I wrote down topics of this “Making Visual Storytelling App with Kwik” like this and tried to add some visualization with the characters: cat or hedgehog to explain Kwik animation and interactions from scene 6

1 Design

You need to think of your plan for learning with tutorials/documentations, for implementing with tools, along to the workflow in order to make for the goalof self-publishing a visual storytelling app which are capable of animations, audio and interactive effects.

6 Making Animations

There are simple but effective animation widgets available in Kwik. You can control an animation by setting parameters like duration, repeat number, transparency etc. For instance, a simple linear animation like a car moving back/force, rotating wheels etc wth various parameter settings. Timer function allow to trigger an animation after certain amount of time is passed.

Making pagination out of scripts

The first 3 scenes will set up for digital self publishing as the presentation’s domain we focus on. The main story is Kwik and I intended to hold the 3 stages for Kwik as beginning, intermediate and advanced topics with cat and hedgehog characters. Don’t ask why needs such cute characters. It looks better than a basic rectangle or circle shape.
