The Hub: KBR Short Stories

Over the past two years, Kids' Book Review has published almost 100 stories by aspiring children's authors.

We've loved reading the submissions each month and sharing the best of the best on KBR for everyone to enjoy.

Due to time limitations for our wonderful KBR team, we are putting this feature on hold for the remainder of 2015. Hopefully we'll return in 2016 with new monthly prompts.

Until then, why not read some of the stories we've already shared and maybe leave a comment to encourage the author.

Thank you to everyone who has submitted stories. We appreciate your support for Kids' Book Review and your willingness to share your wonderful creations with the world.

  6. Of course, being a children's book site, the stories should be for kids. As for content, or what the story is about, you should write what appeals to kids, because the stories are for kids.

  8. Hi girls, I just read Michelle's beautiful "Oomi" story and was wondering if that was the first "beach" story or have I missed some? Where do I go to read the other "beach" stories?
    Thanks,
    Rachel
