Happy Birthday, KidLit TV!

FirstBirthday

It was a wonderful year of firsts for KidLit TV. Founded by Julie Gribble, KidLit TV is the first multimedia website created to aid parents and educators explore the world of children’s literature. It received its first big award, the Parents’ Choice Gold Award, and it is currently in the process of launching KidLit RADIO.

“KidLit TV is an exciting and informative destination for authors, illustrators, teachers, publishers, and anyone with a passion for children’s literature.” — Children’s Book Council

“Visitors are almost guaranteed to find something interesting and useful, whether they are consumers, producers, or curators of children’s literature.” — Parents’ Choice on KidLit TV

Authors, illustrators and fans of all ages came out in droves to celebrate KidLit TV’s BIG ONE.

Here are some photographic highlights:

AWFY provides free visual art instruction, academic support, and mentoring to students in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

Happy Birthday, KidLit TV! I suspect that the BIG TWO is going to be even bigger and better.

  1. It was great to meet you, Robin! 🙂 Sorry I didn’t have a chance to say ‘goodbye’. I ran out of there after the auction… My son, it turns out, DOES know your niece! 🙂 Hope to see you again at another book event. 🙂
