Make sure your picture book story is ready for an illustrator!

Before you send your story to an illustrator, make sure to "paginate" or lay out the text to see how it fits in the 32-page picture book template. Use this picture book page layout to help you update your manuscript to align with your layout before you hit send.


  1. The 32-page layout most picture books should follow when laid out as a finished story
  2. Where your page turns will fall in order to keep a reader turning the page
  3. How much text is on each page to know if there's enough room for illustrations


  1. Google slides sample pagination layout to digitally layout your story as a book
  2. Fillable 32-page PDF layout with the 4 pages to skip with your text
  3. Video tutorial for how to use the pagination

Also found inside our Kidlit Writer's Starter Kit!


How do you use the picture book page layout?

Picture books combine both text and illustrations to tell a story, but you don't have to create the art yourself. Instead, paste your manuscript text into the page layout to see where it falls in the book. A great way to see how the story flows and make final edits to your story before you send it to an illustrator!

How quickly will you receive your worksheet?

The Picture Book Page Layout will be delivered digitally, via the email address you provide at checkout. It should arrive within 5-10 minutes of your purchase. (The PDF story outline is both fillable to type on from your computer or printer-friendly if you prefer to handwrite your thoughts.)

This is a digital product. Nothing physical will ship.

Please note: Our digital products are for personal use only. While you can use the fillable fields on your computer or print out the sheets yourself, you cannot share this with anyone else, make a copy, or use this for resale.
