The Legit-Lit-4-Kids Blog was born out of many burning inquiries I had about both children’s literature and literacy. As a mother of two, one five-year-old girl and a two-year-old little boy, I began thinking of things like:
Now, as my daughter is getting older, I have the same queries that also revolve around writing. Reading and writing tend to go hand in hand, so I began to expand my research. Although I write children’s books, my educational and professional background lies in holistic healthcare, mind & body psychology and massage therapy, which at first I imagined would be zero help concerning this subject, but then more questions started forming like:
Thus was born, the Legit-Lit-4-Kids Blog. With a pledge declaring loud and proud that I will be: “Helping adults to inspire, motivate & provide the opportunity for kids to read & write creatively.”
I would design a website with useful information, and space where I can dispense my findings and receive questions and comments from you all.
My plan will be to post twice a week, time permitting, and also include things like book reviews, author and or illustrator interviews, and anything I can think of that may help concerning children’s literature and literacy. You can read these articles, or if you are on the go, I will also have an audio recording of each one to make it even easier! No excuses! I want to educate and encourage adults to teach their children the importance of reading and writing as these skills are imperative.
