I wrote another story for my 1st grader to encourage him to read, he looks forward to me creating a new little mini-book for him to read each week.  In include several of the words he is learning in school for the week to help him along.  This weeks story was “A Boy Wizard”, these stories are meant to be read by 5-8 year old’s.

    Heheh it’s a fun story. Very good for kids indeed. Hey you have any plans of compiling all your stories and making it into a book? I’m assuming you have made a lot already. You can print it. Coloured of course. Buy materials for binding, or have it done. You can make money out of this! :)

      I print them out for my son to read at home, but no formal publications.

    your son is one lucky boy…I like how you want to set a standard of reading without ‘mush’

      Have to start simple, as he learns more complex words I will create more complex stories.

    You know, this was exactly the motivation behind my writing Trockle, my first published children’s book. ;)

      That is so cool, I would pen some of my stories to book if I had a good illustrator. I have the imagination and creativity, I just don’t know any good illustrators who will work with me (in my price range)

    Hi Justin,

    This is great. You need an illustrator, still?
    Email me :) I know someone reasonable.

    I participated in a grab-bag story with my kids as part of a home-school project. You can search “Djinn” on my blog.

    Power to the self-publishers!

    Cheers,

    Mitch

      If I had illustration ability I probably could write some decent kids books and self publish on Amazon or something, but I have 0 artistic ability. These were just images found online that I printed to help get the point of the story across.

      I am still trying to find the time to compose my first poetry book on Amazon.com with a collection of Twitter poems.
