Books to Kids is committed to: Making books available to ALL children. Helping children find joy in reading. Helping children connect with their favorite authors & illustrators. Everything we do is to promote and enrich children's literacy.
Founded in July 2018, Books to Kids will be serving children, ages 0 to young adult, in the Denver Metro area and environs.
Our goals for 2018-19 include hosting the Children's Festival of Stories in March 2019. The festival is a day-long FREE event that will feature national, regional and local children's book authors & illustrators of board books, picture books, chapter books & middle grade novels. Our featured presenters offer book signings, panel discussions as well as meet-and-greet sessions with educators, librarians and children in the Denver metro area.
An additional goal is to raise $20,000 to fund the 2019 Children's Festival of Stories. The very successful 2018 premiere of this FREE event was a collaborative creation between Second Star to the Right Children's Books (NW Denver) and the Denver Arts & Venues Cultural Program; at the 2018 event, we were deeply gratified to see youngsters have an opportunity to visit with children's book authors & illustrators. This year, we formed our non profit as a means for expanding upon the mission that inspired Second Star Books. It is our intention that the Children's Festival of Stories become an annual event.
