Expanding literacy with its unique approach of: Imagine. Explore. Read.

Kid Literacy, Inc. is a 501c3 nonprofit organization founded in 2018 by award-winning children’s author and podcast host Jennifer Swanson.
Its mission is to expand literacy for kids in grades K – 8
by using the principles of STEM lieracy learning — IMAGINE. EXPLORE. READ.

Kid Literacy offers a unique literacy experience which will engage curiosity and encourage students to learn problem-solving and critical thinking using the three pillars of IMAGINE. EXPLORE. READ.  Each school that participates will receive free activities for the classroom, a free author/illustrator visit, and $500 worth of books for their classroom or library.


KidLiteracy, Inc. works with each author or illustrator to tailor an event to his or her preferences. You may choose which book(s) you’d like to present, the type of presentation, and the grade level(s) of the group. Suggested presentations included assembly-size talks about your writing, one of your books, reading and Q&A, or smaller groups which include writing workshops, science demonstrations, or drawing together. We want all of the authors and illustrators who participate in our program to have a wonderful experience.

Volunteer with schools

KidLiteracy. Inc. is happy to work with publishers to bring their authors to under-resourced schools in the North Florida / First Coast area. We will provide a classroom set of books to the school library. In addition to increased author visibility, KidLiteracy, Inc. book purchases lead to increased sales. However, publisher donations are always welcome.
