Kristi's Book Nook takes pride in sharing stories that feature people and characters of color. As more writers of color are being recognized for their efforts, hard work and dedication, our children will be able to truly see themselves in stories they read and share. This is my dream, and I invite you to share and celebrate with me.
Celebrate Black History & Authors Every Day.
I am a parent, blogger, reviewer and a writer. Reading is important and I encourage parents and children to pick up a book whenever possible. I started Kristi's Book Nook so that I could share my book discoveries with you. What you will find are treasures that will inspire, educate and help readers re-think the possibilites of their world.
To help me achieve my goal of becoming a better writer and book reviewer, I am a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), the Association of Children's Authors and Illustrators of Color (ACAIC), the Kansas City Writers Meetup Group, The Kansas City Authors Group and I have a certificate in Writing for Children & Teenagers from The Institute of Children's Literature.
