This project contains the components and procedures for writing a children‟s book, as the first in its series. The story is of a child at a birthday party who puts on a baseball cap. He then morphs into a pitcher of a baseball team on the brink of getting into the playoffs. This project has the timeline and the steps that it took to get to the end result, which was the first draft of the first book in the series. The series has a central theme. In each book, a child will put on a hat, and then transform into a person who wears that type of hat. For example, a child will put on a chef‟s hat and then turn into a gourmet chef with a large meal that needs to be prepared. The hat theme will be used in all of the following books.
