Reading with Your Kids Celebrates Literacy and Imagination! This episode of "Reading with Your Kids" features inspiring conversations about literacy advocacy and children's literature. NFL star Brandin Bryant discusses his debut book "So You Want to Be an Athlete" which aims to spark the joy of reading in reluctant readers. Bryant wrote the book during lockdown to address low literacy rates in America.

Author Scott Sollers shares his debut picture book "A Tall Tale: How the Ostriches Got Their Long Legs and Neck." The story follows two tribes in Africa who learn to share resources and live together in harmony. Sollers drew from childhood storytelling experiences with his daughters to craft heartwarming tales that kids enjoy reading repeatedly. Both guests emphasize the importance of early literacy skills and supporting children's creativity through storytelling. The pandemic accelerated many creators, including Bryant who discovered his passion for writing. Sollers plans to expand "A Tall Tale" into a series. Scott also tells us about his involvement in the nonprofit The First Tee that uses golf to teach life values to youth.
