"Modelling & Acting for Kids takes a step by step approach
to turn your child's modelling or acting career
into a smooth and enjoyable journey for all concerned.
It includes tips on how to stay away from scams and protect your child,
and covers finding an agent, preparing for auditions,

There is even advice on how to deal with success,
and how to tell if your child is suited for this business.

Using interviews with professionals, as well as with kids who have succeeded as models and actors,
Janice Hally, a professional scriptwriter with extensive casting experience,
guides us to make the correct choices for the well being of the child.

She has written a detailed and informative book for parents
who are considering involving their child in the world of professional modelling and acting.
It makes a good reference for kids themselves,
and for those involved with them, in the business.

At the end of each chapter, the author summarizes important points to remember,
with an in-depth checklist that you can have with you at all times.
Modelling & Acting for Kids is a must read and a must have book for kids
(and their parents) considering entering the modelling and acting world.

It's full of behind-the-scenes secrets and tips, with everything you need to know
to help your child, yourself, and those involved in the industry,
make it a stress-free and fun experience."
