Dear Reader,

Welcome to KidsBuzz, where you can meet 3 to 6 authors a week who each have written special notes exclusively for you. It’s a way to get to know them and their books in a very personal way.

Just click on the book covers here and discover what these authors have for you.

Catch up on what your favorites are doing and discover new authors you’ll love.

In each KidsBuzz note will be invitations to join contests, get free books or bookplates or bookmarks, read personal stories, and more.

Author’s tour schedules will be listed so you can invite an author to speak to your book club. And if an author does phone in discussions with book clubs that will be listed too.

We hope you come back often to meet the authors and find out what they’ve created just for you, dear readers.

Just some of what you’ll find in KidsBuzz notes:
  • Contests for readers
  • Free early reading copies
  • Free signed books
  • News about tours
  • New reviews
  • Giveaways
  • Essays & Excerpts
  • Book Group Speaking availability
    (in person or on the phone)
