A Really Cool Idea!

If you read my literacy blog, then you have probably already seen this post.  I'm sharing it with my kindergarten friends because I think this website is awesome for young writers!  The process is really very easy.  We have a scanner at home, but you could also do this by taking pictures of your child's artwork. 

Here's the post:

Yep, my daughter is a published author.  Her first addition, hardbound book, arrived in the mail yesterday.  She dedicated her book to her family.  Awww.

Ok, so the truth is, I found this GREAT website, run by Barnes and Noble.  It's called Tikatok.  I showed it to my daughter and we were able to read several featured stories, written by other kids.  She was so excited to get started!  I'll walk you through the process in a future post.  For now, you should just check out the site.  (By the way, I don't receive any compensation from the company.  I was just really excited to find this resource.)

I can't even begin to tell you the smiles and giggles coming from my little girl, when her book arrived.

There's even a great About the Author page on the back of the book.

Oh, so much fun!  I'll try to get a post out, this weekend, including the nuts and bolts of how this works.  It's pretty cool, very simple, and highly motivating for young writers.

Happy writing!
