Get Caught Reading Month ReCap


May was a great month and I am pleased to say, that was due in large part to the participation of these wonderful authors!  These five were guests on my The Magic Happens Radio Network program Tell Me a Story and were willing to Get Caught Reading. By sharing their stories and some of their stories with listeners from around the world, they brought us a little together in support of children’s literacy. Please go back and listen to their podcasts, share them with your readers and of course, follow their blogs.

We are going in date order here:













Once again, thank you to everyone who participated in our celebration of Get Caught Reading month, May 2016!  Reading is everyone’s right.

Who will Get Caught Reading on Tell Me a Story?


Well, here we are, in the month of May 2016 and you know what that means…  it is Get Caught Reading Month!  Authors, publishers, teachers and high profile public figures are banding together to promote literacy with campaigns aimed specifically at children. This is not a new idea, it’s been around since 1999 and still going strong. http://www.getcaughtreading.org

I have been encouraging everyone I come in contact with to do something in support of this initiative, such as reading to children, tutoring children, writing for children and most importantly, BEING that role model and to GET CAUGHT READING! In other words, we each have a contribution we can make.

One of my contributions to this month, is to host interviews with several authors on my Friday afternoon internet radio program, Tell Me a Story, which airs on The Magic Happens Radio Network.  Four fellow bloggers have graciously agreed to participate, as there are four Fridays in the month of May this year. Here they are, in alphabetical order.  Sally Cronin, Deanie Humphrys-Dunne, Don Massenzio and Bette A. Stevens. These extremely talented, published authors are passionate about supporting literacy and I am just as anxious as you, to hear what they have to say.

Of course I am not going to tell you, right now, who is to be featured in which week, you’ll have to catch the weekly Wednesday posts, announcing that Friday’s guest.  Once you have heard the program, please visit the author’s blog and share a cheery comment.  Perhaps you will be moved to look up their books and even FOLLOW them, if you aren’t already.

This is promising to be one inspiring month and it’s all because we are willing to do our part to support literacy and to GET CAUGHT READING!

As some of you may know, I was born with cerebral palsy. It only affects my legs, so I’m blessed in that regard. One of the most amazing benefits I had was my parents’ philosophy…
