Cool Kidlit from Emerging Authors: October

In this wild and crazy year known as 2020, I’ve found safe refuge in my many Facebook Groups time and time again.
When my FB Feed is filled with politics, mask debates, and general yuckyness, I know I can always find happy humans and exceptional info in a handful of my favorite private Groups.
I’m also amazed at the amount and quality of kids’ books being published by emerging authors.I also know how frustrating it can be to be heard and seen on the noisy and crowded WWW.
With that in mind, I’m giving a shout to these new and emerging authors and I hope you will consider adding their books to your home or school bookshelf. Enjoy!
