Kids for Kids BooksTM  Young Author Publishing Adventure

Young authors and illustrators creating books...

Join us on a Young Author Publishing Adventure! Kids for Kids BooksTM projects provide an exciting author experience that gets Canadian students writing! The program is not only economical but is a great way to incorporate many areas of the curriculum into a language arts project. Teachers are always looking for unique literacy based resources and enjoy sharing this experience with students - often tying study themes into the project.

Schools have found that the Kids for Kids BooksTM Young Author Publishing Adventure program gets kids engaged in writing and reading. After all, they are writing for the purpose of becoming officially published authors.

Parents love the opportunity for their kids to become published in a “real” book (professionally completed, perfect bound). A great keepsake – families often order extra books for extended family, or some may have more than one child in a book and choose to order just one book for their family. We have made the program accessible and flexible to all who wish to participate!

Short stories, fairytales, plays, poems, reflections, fact-based writing, graphic novels – we can publish them all!

Are you ready to take an exciting journey from imagination to publication!
