Hi everyone.

Most of you know one of my passions is writing.

*bet you couldn’t guess that. LAUGHING* 

I’m honored to be a part of the KidLit TV team.  For those of you who haven’t checked out their website, it is full of videos that are kid-friendly.

STORYMAKERS: Features authors (and kidlit champions) who share something about a book of theirs. It could be an interview, or a yummy recipe, or a craft, or sharing other titles, and on and on. It’s a great way for children to see the people who are behind-the-book.

READ OUT LOUD: Who doesn’t like story time????? So gather around and listen in as someone (author/illustrator/literacy champion) reads a story and shares the artwork inside the covers.

READ, SET, DRAW!: Time to drag out your pencils, pens, markers, or water colors! Budding artists can learn first-hand to draw from illustrators!!!! How cool is that?!?

Podcasts: Many of the episodes are available as podcasts! You can always listen to an episode!

There’s a tab for crafts and thinking outside-the-box! There’s also Phil’s Fast 5 episodes, Two-In-A-Teepee, and so much more.

Check out: KidLit.TV, but be prepared to stay for a while!

Until next time…
Happy writing!

www (dot) Wednesday –
kidlit.tv

This website is one I refer not only to writers and illustrators, but to anyone who has children in their life… parents, grandparents, educators, media specialist, daycare facilities, and on and on I could go.

KidLit TV offers so much to everyone. #StoryMakers, hosted by Rocco Staino highlights authors and illustrators with an interview. #InsideScoop gives us a sneak peek at new books. #FieldTrip will take you on the scene to kidlit events. #ReadOutLoud has authors and illustrators reading their books. There is also the KidLitRADIO podcast that you can listen too. Not to mention arts, crafts, recipes… Need I say more?

Then add to that, their Facebook group page where you can interact with all involved. *bonus*

WHAT is KidLit TV?

We are a diverse group of parents, educators, librarians, kid lit creators, and award winning filmmakers all working together to bring great books to kids! Our mission is to create fun new ways to reinforce an appreciation of reading that children will carry with them for the rest of their lives.

The diverse KidLit TV team supports the ‘We Need Diverse Books’ and ‘Multicultural Children’s Book Day’ initiatives by encouraging the children’s literature community to create more books that reflect the diversity of our society.

#KidLitTV Supports Literacy!

KidLitOnEllenShow

 


<— CLICK ON THIS PICTURE
and watch the video.

#KidLitOnEllenShow is a great campaign that KidLit TV is behind. Why? Because kidlit matters!!! The ALAYMA (American Library Association Youth Media Awards) is our Oscars and used to be featured on national television, but no longer does. We know that The Ellen Show not only knows how to have a good time, but they also feature things that matter and are great about putting important topics out into the world.

Did you watch the video yet? Not only are the KidLit TV Team Members on board with this campaign, but many other people involved in the kidlit community are as well. Did you see some of your favorites in the video? I know I did.

Would you like to help spread the word? Maybe get Ellen Degeneres’ attention?!!!!!!!!? See THIS BLOG POST and you’ll find a link to make a suggestion to The Ellen Show. AND if you are on Twitter, you can RETWEET THIS POST!

KidLit TV also supports…
