One Great Kid's Read

Delilah's Song

A Closer Look: Chantilly Smith

In her book, Delilah's Song, she gets into detail about what ADHD feels like for a little girl, using a reference that children can understand... song. Chantilly's own daughter, Delilah, was the inspiration and model for the story. By the way, the real Delilah loves her book and is so excited to share it with other children. It's a fantastic story to open up dialogue about many emotions and feelings in disabled and non-disabled children

    While reading books and trying to entertain her own children, she noticed that there is a large amount of children's content  sending the wrong messages.  She began creating stories for her own children to fill the void and recently has decided to bring those stories to you and your little ones.

    Chantilly is a mother and grandmother. She has seven children ages five through twenty one years old. She is also an advocate for children with special needs, as some of her own children fall under this category. Her youngest daughter has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder combined with a learning disability and has been the source of much of Chantilly's inspiration in writing. One of her sons was diagnosed with Autism and also inspires her everyday. She has been fighting for equality in education for all children since 2003.

    Ms. Smith served as a Family Advocate, where she partnered with families to establish mutual trust, assisted in Kindergarten enrollment and readiness, and in preparing children for a lifetime of learning. Chantilly also spent many years serving in the Army, which contributed to her love of fundamental freedoms, community and country. Ms. Smith held membership in the National Association for the Education of Young Children, has been certified in many areas to add to her knowledge of Cultural Diversity, Frameworks of Poverty, Early Childhood, Beyond Behavior, and Communication Knowledge Areas K-5.

    When Chantilly Smith is not tied up answering life's most challenging questions for her three adult children, she's kissing boo boos and fostering creative minds for her four younger children. When that small fraction of her day (clearly sarcasm) is over, she is writing and creating children's books.

Great Kid's Reads

We are waiting

to review your book. Children are waiting to read it.

Submit your book or product for Evaluation/ Editorial Review

   Please Review:

Great Kid's Reads reviews ONLY published fiction and non-fiction books for children. Similarly, we also will review other related items such as child and family products, e-books, and audio-books.

We will accept submissions from publishers, authors, illustrators, publicists and creators. Yes, we absolutely accept books from independent authors and self-publishers! Submissions are then evaluated. The basis of our evaluation is value, quality, presentation, illustration, and impact. 

Your evaluation may not always be good. In the instance that it is not going to result in a pleasant experience for all of us, rather than publicly shame your book, we will email you with concise constructive criticism, (which will be entirely up to you) to use it to your benefit, or not.  We do not list the books that are denied for review, on our website, but you are welcome to re-submit your work after you have edited and made changes to receive a review or possible submission to our site.  Depending on evaluators & reviewers available, this process can take a few weeks.

Is there a fee for reviews? 

You submit your children's books for evaluation. If it is accepted, We then review your material, and  provide you with a 4 star or above rating. (If your book is under 4 stars, it will not be accepted for review, therefore you will not be rated)  We cannot guarantee time-frames, review dates, and cannot respond to queries about the status of materials submitted for review. If you need an urgent review or guaranteed review please see information on our Urgent Review Program, which does carry a fee.  A handful of authors and books from our free reviews will be chosen to be listed on our website, at our discretion.

What gets on the website?

Of the books we review, we pick our collective favorites. Our favorites get listed on Great Kid's Reads, they may also be shared on our Instagram, Facebook or other social media accounts to help you promote your book to the world.
