Episode Description

The statistics are staggering! Did you know studies show that the older kids get, the more likely they are to stop reading? Why is this important? Because books are the foundation of kids' intellectual and emotional development! The books kids read influence them to choose a career, develop a love of animals, cope with childhood traumas like bullying and many other magical things. Today's guest, Linda F. Radke, President of Story Monsters and Publisher of Story Monsters Ink magazine, has created an empire devoted to encouraging kids to read and helping teachers, librarians and parents choose the best books. Hear her personal story of how she first got into publishing as an author 30 years ago, fell in love with it, and became a book and magazine publisher. Indeed, she's a matchmaker for authors and readers - and sends them on their way to living happily ever after!
