Bedtime-Story site has also been featured by MSNBC, the BBC, MIT's Invention

Since Its Debut in 1996 - The Bedtime-Story Literacy Project has functioned as a cooperative effort, giving talented authors and illustrators, both published and unpublished, the opportunity to familiarize traditional publishers, as well as the parents of young readers, with the quality of their creative work.
The site was designed to encourage literary and artistic creativity. We mentor, and provide editing as well as encouragement, to talented authors and artists whose works will undoubtedly influence young minds. Towards that end, we also strive for artistic synergy. An illustrator's work imparts visual depth to the author's tale, and the story helps to bring an illustrator's work to life.
Bedtime-Story's primary goal is to promote literacy, and help instill a lifetime joy of reading.
Bedtime-Story supports and encourages a strong parent-child relationship. We select works for publication which are judged to be entertaining, with the intent of fostering a positive shared experience that will remain in the child's memory for years to come.
