Answer
Stacy... First contact your local community college and see if you can find a writing class.  Next google the web and find the local chapter of "Children's writers and illustrations Society"... it is a world wide group... they have tons of info for anyone who wants to write a children's book.

Then finally join a local critique group or start one yourself...
