Petra, Site Founder

I am a mom of two and a certified reading specialist. Both of my jobs keep me busy and allow me to do what I love best, helping kids learn. I am an avid reader and enjoy helping kids discover the joy of reading for themselves. I enjoy writing, traveling, spending time with family, yoga, and watching movies. You can contact me on Twitter (@PetraCraddock) or on my Facebook page: Literacy Matters Today Facebook Page. I have written several children’s e-books and am currently working on a middle grade fiction book. My books can be found on my Amazon Author Page:

I am a mom as well, to two daughters ages 19 and 16, and a son age 2. I also have pursued my passion for reading to become a reading specialist. While I currently do not have as much time as I would like to read for enjoyment, both my personal and professional responsibilities allow me to constantly seek a wide range of literacy resources for both teachers and parents, which I love to pass along. I am a sometimes scrapbooker, a movie lover, and a new runner who has recently completed her first 5K! I am so happy to be a part of this project!
