And they say kids don't read, how about these kids who write!

If you believe what the media says, kids aren't into reading these days.
Well, let me be the first to tell you that kids aren't just reading, they're writing books too!
Victoria Christopher Murray and ReShonda Tate Billingsley launched the Brown Kids/Brown Teens line from their publishing company Brown Girls Publishing.

And this December, Brown Girls Kids will release a collection of Christmas stories written by three young ladies, Morgan Billingsley, Jackie Lee and Gabrielle Simone.
These three authors are under the age of 16!

The Perfect Present will be released on December 9th.

Three amazing stories about the magic of Christmas and discovering what really matters when it comes to celebrating the season!
 Operation: Santa is Real
Max and Mickey are twins who share everything! A love of sno cones, video games, and Christmas…especially Santa Claus. But Max no longer believes in Santa and Mickey is on a mission to convince her brother that Santa is real. But when her plan backfires, Mickey may find herself on Santa’s naughty list. And when all is said and done, the M and M twins will learn what really matters when it comes to celebrating the season.
 Friending the Grinch
Jasmine can’t seem to find her Christmas spirit. A new girl named Jayla has stolen her joy, and some of her friends. Between her conniving and lying, Jayla is ruining Jasmine’s life. But Jasmine is the only one that can see Jayla for the Grinch that she is. Everyone else is fooled by her sob story of a tough life. Can Jasmine get her family and friends to see the truth? Or will Jayla help her discover a few things about herself?
 The Littlest Elf
Kylie is small. The tiniest elf in Santa’s workshop and she can’t seem to do anything right. After nearly ruining Christmas, she finds herself wondering if she will ever be good enough to work for Santa. Following a worldwind adventure, she finds that she was closer to the answer than she thought. Join Kylie as she discovers the real meaning of Christmas!
