Chock-Full Website for Kids and Parents

The first book Knowonder! is publishing features this cutie

     Yesterday, Phillip Chipping was a Guest Blogger. He wrote about the importance of reading to children. I urge you to check out his innovative website that appeals to both kids and adults, also to those who write for kids. 
     Knowonder! publishes a new story for kids every day of the week. All are written by professional writers and carefully selected by a team of editors. 
     There are articles with tips for parents and grandparents, artwork done by kids for kids, a section on fun facts--always a hit with children. 
     Children and the authors of the stories can win monthly prizes. Authors receive payment for their stories but can also win for having one of the top three stories of the month or Editor's Choice. Children can submit stories and art work, which are all in the running for awards.
     Knowonder! has a lot to offer, and as of September 1st, they will begin publishing digital books. They also have an app so you can check out all they offer on your smart phone. See the homepage for a link to download.  
     There is a page with detailed, and I do mean detailed, guidelines for writers. If you have a story for kids that you would like to submit to this paying market, read these guidelines carefully. Then follow them! Saves everyone time when writers adhere to guidelines. 
     Take some time to go through all the sections on this full-to-bursting website. Add it to your Favorites or Bookmarks and check it daily for a new story.
