SillyBooks invites children to submit their written work, either fiction or non-fiction. Submissions may be individual or collaborative efforts. SillyBooks publishes all the writing that it receives, and visitors to the site are encouraged to vote for the writing they appreciate most.
As a powerful motivator, each month SillyBooks turns the best piece of writing it receives into a beautifully illustrated and animated flash book that is read aloud by a professional actor. SillyBooks chooses what it deems to be the best piece of writing from the 3 submissions that receive the most votes.
For most authors, I expect that the cash prize of $25 pales by comparison with the published version of the writing.
SillyBooks has created an accessible, high quality website, with a significant range of attractive and engaging offerings for children. In addition to the material written by children for other children, there are stories and poetry by established authors, catchy animated songs suitable for sing-along, puzzles and games.
SillyBooks is a website with potential to enrich and extend learning and literacy development on many levels. Click this link to visit http://www.sillybooks.net.
