kidlit parade BADGEWelcome to my Kid Lit Parade page! If you are unfamiliar with @KidLitParade and #kidlitx, it is a collaboration project between three authors and one voice-over actor/teacher. Together it is our mission to unite readers, educators, caregivers, authors, and illustrators in the common goal to promote children’s literacy. In a world full of magnificent technology, every once in a while you need to slow it down and take time to fall in love with a timeless classic or a new cutting-edge indie book. Wherever your interest lies, take a moment to share the gift of reading with a child.

We look forward to bringing you information and linking you together with like-minded individuals via our Facebook Group where you will be able to post and exchange ideas. In addition, if you’d like to be included in our Web-Directory, just let us know! In turn, we hope you will include the directory on your page/site. It is about building a fellowship and developing fresh, new concepts in support of children’s literacy to get kids excited about reading. Thank you for your interest in our journey. We hope you will join us on this path of discovery.

We encourage our members to consider making a Read Aloud video to share in an effort to connect with children. When you are unable to visit a classroom because of travel limitations, and the school is not set-up for Skype, most still have access to online services. When all you have is a conference call at your disposal, this will get children prepped and ready with questions! Plus, they have the excitement of watching an author “read” their story.
