Kids for Kids

‘Kids for Kids’ is a mini-magazine (a zine) for kids, by kids of art, stories, poetry, comics.

Honoring and appreciating children’s creativity and expressions, with the main impetus behind the project being that I imagined kids would really enjoy seeing each other’s art, comics, stories, and poems… Hence, this community project, for kids by kids!

“I think kids’ art is very important to the world and important to let them know their creativity is valued. So this project is wonderful.” -Judith Skillman

Description

The idea for making a kids zine came about when my daughter, Maude was little, on a trip to the SW Library. We really love adult-made kids’ books, but I also adore kid’s creative expressions. Children have original minds that think of things differently than adults, and their art (and role-play) and writing can be so cute, beautiful, clever, funny,  interesting. It made me think kids would love seeing art and writing by other kids in a book. That was some years ago. Once able to get to the project during the pandemic, it was fairly slow going collecting what you see inside here. 

This is a first for this press—the children’s book sector. I may make another one next year or it may be a one-off depending on how things go. Seeing kids’ creative work as their arts slowly trickled in was a delight, so I will hope to do another.
