My hilarious friend Sandi (her propensity for being incredibly funny and clever has nothing to do with this post, but I needed to let you know) has two beautiful little girls (Amelia and Audrey) who recently started a blog. They’re not only as clever as their mama, but they’re tech-savvy. And I’m not. And that makes me jealous. But I digress.
Wait, first I have to say that when Sandi’s eldest daughter Amelia was a wee little baby I stopped by their house and she was snacking on avocados. I remember thinking, “That baby is so cool. I want a baby like that baby.”
And now I have a 3-year-old and today she poked her avocado slice with a
Ghiradelli Chocolate Squares wrapper fork and said, “Fee Fi Fo Fum, I smell the blood of an avocado on my plate!” Poke.
I still love her and think she’s pretty darn cool. But I’m hoping she loves avocados one day soon.
Amelia and Audrey’s blog, KidsBookyBubbles, is just for kids. They started the site “because they thought it would be fun for kids to share stories that they write with each other, because who wants to read stories written by grownups?” I agree! 🙂
I’m not a kid (well, technically I’m not) and I can’t stop reading the stories on KidsBookyBubbles. Such a great idea. There’s something about having your writing published that boosts the self-esteem and encourages you to keep writing. When I was a teacher, the children would beam with pride when I hung their writing on the wall or created books filled with their stories and essays. Remember how excited you were to share your work with your parents at Open House? Good memories. I’m betting this site amplifies that feeling for the young authors. And I support that in full!
If you know a young one who would like to submit a story for publication on KidsBookyBubbles, you can do so right on their site. Or you can just follow KidsBookyBubbles like I do and enjoy the work and imagination of today’s youth:)
