Photoshop for making children's books?

I was wondering what the standard industry practice was for this. My specific questions are:

- Would you have your entire book in one PSD file (with page spreads as separate artboards), or have each page spread as a separate document?

- Does the layout finish with Photoshop, or is it better to put everything into InDesign? And if this is the case, which file type should you export as from Photoshop?

- Bonus question, more about publishing itself... do publishers accept double-page spreads as you've illustrated them, or do they need to be rearranged so it appears how it would when printed on separate sheets?

 

It would be great to hear from someone who has illustrated/edited/published a children's book this way. Any further tips are also welcome 🙂
