Hire the best picture book proofreaders


A picture book is only so many words, you might be thinking if you were a picture book author. Surely there’s no need to proofread it, right? Actually, you’d be wrong about that. It’s precisely because a picture book is so short that it’s all the more important to read it over again and make sure that every word counts.


And if you’d like an even higher level of insurance, consider hiring a picture book proofreader. These publishing professionals have the experience and knowledge to be the safety net that every book needs before it’s put on a shelf — catching typos and grammatical errors alike.


Luckily, you’re in luck if you’re looking for the best picture book proofreaders. Reedsy is home to hundreds of book editors — many of whom have worked on New York Times bestselling children’s books. Sign up for free to get started today.
