Excerpt from Show

Katie Eder — Founder of Kids Tales and an International Literacy Association 30 Under 30 Literacy Champion:

My goal for Kids Tales, and in general, is for every kid in the country and around the world to have the chance to be an author because the kids you see writing stories aren't necessarily the ones with the ability, it's probably more because they are the kids with the opportunity. So the goal with Kids Tales is to give every kid—no matter their situation, no matter how much money they have or where they live—the opportunity to write and publish a book."
