The Reading With Your Kids Podcast is helping authors in so many ways. One author was flown across the country for a school gig after being on the show, many others report a bump in sales immediately following their appearances on the show, and another was invited to have her debut middle grade book be a part of a special collection of books for librarians.

How can we help you? There is no cost, no obligation, no strings attached.

Our mission is to inspire parents, (and grandparents, aunts, uncles, caretakers) to spend more time reading with their kids. And not just with their little ones. We believe that the time we spend reading with our kids, whether it be snuggled up on the couch reading together, or reading a book simultaneously so we can talk about it during dinner or on the way to school, is the foundation on which we build a life long relationship.

Our host is Jed Doherty, also known as Jedlie, an award winning children’s author and nationally acclaimed educational speaker. He would love to speak to you about your most recent book release, and about what kind of conversations parents and kids can have after reading that book. Of course we would also love to speak to you about your favorite past projects and what you are working on for the future.

Being a guest on The Reading With Your Kids Podcast puts you in great company. Our past guests Include some of the brightest stars in the World of Children’s Literature.


“If you have kids and aren’t listening to @readingwithyourkids podcast you should. Discover new authors, new books, and a bit of magic. I recently chatted with @magicjedlie , the host of this amazing podcast for the second time (first time was for my book Cowgirl Lessons in 2018). He has an incredible way of making this nervous author feel at ease!”

How can being on the show help you? A recent guest reports that a number of people backed his Kickstarter campaign after hearing his appearance. Another author was invited to submit her book to a special listing librarians use to discover books for under served populations. And still another author tells us she saw a very significant bump up in sales of her book immediately after her appearance.
