Why Is Reading Important? by Kat Blair

If I couldn’t read, I wouldn’t have even thought of looking in Google for “free copyright crafts.” I wouldn’t have been able to email the owner of FreeKidsCrafts.com to make sure it would be OK to reprint some of their ideas. AND, I wouldn’t have been able to read the return email from a GREAT Lady (!), she is the editor of the Web site and her name is Betty Bose. See her smiling here?

What I said: I am a Children’s Librarian and so I am trying to appeal to Toddlers up through age 12. They all seem to LOVE doing crafts! Our theme for this summer is “Reading is So Delicious!” And so I am willing to use anything that has to do with eating or reading like paper plates or cups or …?
Thank you for your help!

What I say now: WoW! What a helpful response! You have got to go check our her crafts, there are so many! You have got to get going…Oh! But before you go..she said one more thing:

You might also like to take a look at MakingFriends.com. They have a whole section of original paper dolls. This site sells products for crafts but all of the project instructions are free and they also have many free printable projects. The site is owned by my daughter Terri who is a partner with me in FreeKidsCrafts.com.

What a great lady.
