Archives - Kidsreads Newsletter for Parents

Happy 2015, readers!

When a new year comes around, it’s pretty common to get introspective. What will we change to make the next 365 days even better than the last?

At Kidsreads, we’re definitely in that mindset. When Carol Fitzgerald started the site in 1998, it was on the “kids only” section of America Online. The site was called Bookworm, and children were our primary visitors. This made our mission easy --- create and deliver news each month about great children’s books FOR children.

Now, 17 years later, we know that a lot has changed! While we certainly have kids coming to our site, we also have a huge number of parents, teachers, grandparents, media specialists and librarians looking for book recommendations for young readers (and some just visit because they have a warm place in their heart for young people’s literature).
