We recently caught back up with Grommet Tikatok and were excited to hear they've been up to some pretty cool things. If you aren't familiar with Tikatok -- it's is a website where children can read, write, illustrate and publish their very own books (how cool is that?). We admire this company for being a true supporter of children’s literacy and encouraging creative reading and writing in our youth.
Tikatok recently asked children, ages 5 to 12, to imagine, if given a chance, how would they advise the First Lady to encourage children to read and stay active? The creative submissions poured in and Tikatok decided to assemble them into a beautiful compilation. The first copies of “Letters to the First Lady” were released on September 15th.
As part of the company’s ongoing efforts to support reading and literacy, Tikatok will be donating $1.00 per copy sold of “Letters to the First Lady” to the International Children's Digital Library (ICDL) Foundation, the creator of the largest international digital library of freely available children's books (www.childrenslibrary.org).
