Pam Leo, is a family literacy activist, a read-aloud advocate, founder of the Book Fairy Pantry Project, the author of Connection Parenting, and a new children's book, Please Read To Me. Pam has worked with children and families for more than forty years. From her work with teen parents, parents in prison, parents in recovery, and low income parents, she learned that all parents want very much to provide for their own children. She has " never met a parent who didn't want life to be better for their children than it was for them." Her enduring love of children's books, her passion for literacy, and her commitment to empowering parents, are combined in her new role as the founder of the grassroots literacy movement, the Book Fairy Pantry Project, whose mission is "No Child With No Books" - because "Books change children's lives...for good."
Pam Leo is a member of Kindred's International Editorial Advisory Board and a member of the board of directors for Kindred's parent nonprofit, Kindred World (www.KindredWorld.org).
