Kidz Book Club – Australia

Posted by bronwynr on January 20, 2009

Australian childrens authors Deb Abela and Phil Kettle are working on a show , called Kidz Book Club,  made for the Internet that will review primary aged books, interview authors and illustrators and generally promote a love of books and reading in kids.  The authors along with two children will host the show. 
 
They are filming the first show in February and it will be delivered via an online subscription to schools and libraries all over the country. The first show will be ready in March. 

There is a splash page with information at: www.kidzbookclub.com.au
The finished website is being created now and will be online from late January.

Their main aim in doing this project is to create fast-paced, fun program that will appeal to kids from the reluctant reader to the avid bookworm.

  1. Author James Patterson has a ten year-old son who doesn’t like to read. So Patterson has established http://www.readkiddoread.com to help other reluctant readers.

    I, too, grew up as a reluctant reader. And my father was the author of over 70 books. Now I write action-adventure and mystery books especially for tween boys. My blog, Books for boys, http://booksandboys.blogspot.com is # 4 on Google today.
