Little ones love literacy.
Music is magic!
If you know me, you know that I am the Creative Director of Sing into Reading, and I teach literacy through music. You probably also know that I write songs.
Did you know that I write stories. too? You might not know because, until this week, I had never submitted a story for publishing. I have been writing stories for young readers since 2001, when I took "Children's Literature" at Bank Street College. And, I want to share them with the world, so I am (finally) submitting! I made two submissions earlier this week (to a contest and an award) and today I will submit to #50PreciousWords.
50PreciousWords is a writing contest run by Vivan Kirkfield. Vivan is a wonderfully talented author for young readers. Check out her books!
Here is my submission for #50PreciousWords:
THE LIGHT SWITCH
“Mommy, why does the light switch say, ‘No?’”
“The light switch doesn’t say, ‘No.’”
“Yes, it does.”
