    Have you seen Template for a book for children? As they start out with, this is a hard thing to have a general solution to. What aspects of this story/format are you looking to replicate?

I don't know if a template exists elsewhere, but you can easily provide the required settings:

\documentclass[14pt,openany]{memoir}
\usepackage[a6paper,textheight=19\baselineskip,footskip=40pt]{geometry}
\usepackage[pagestyles]{titlesec}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{lipsum}% kust to generate text for the example

\definecolor{myorange}{RGB}{193,158,88}
\definecolor{pagecolor}{RGB}{251,234,214}

\titleformat{\chapter}
  {\normalfont\Large\itshape\bfseries\filcenter\color{myorange}}{}{0em}{}

\newpagestyle{mystyle}{
  \sethead{}{}{}
  \setfoot{}{\thepage}{}
}
\pagestyle{mystyle}

\linespread{2}
\raggedright
\pagecolor{pagecolor}

\begin{document}

\chapter{Cookies}
\begin{figure*}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=.7\textwidth]{taf}
\end{figure*}
\lipsum[1-6]

\end{document}

enter image description here

Remarks about the class and packages used:

  • memoir: Just because it gives 14pt font size easily.

  • titlesec: change of the format for chapter titles. I used the pagestyles option to easily define the headers/footers. Using titlesec in this case (with memoir) won't have any undesired consequences.

  • geometry: page layout.

  • xcolor: color settings for chapter titles and page background.

  • graphicx: image inclusion.
