Read With Carylee
US and International
A little about me:
"Hi, I’m Carylee Carrington, author, entrepreneur and literacy advocate. I live in Northern Virginia with my two amazing boys, where I enjoy an active lifestyle.
I am, to some, known as the “accidental author,” because this was not where I thought my path would lead. Though I love writing, being a children’s author was the furthest thing from my mind.My approach to writing children’s books is influenced by the lives of children all around me. My eldest son inspired my first published book, entitled “Everyone, Just Like Me.” One of my main goals as an author is to encourage children to embrace their differences with the understanding that everyone is unique in their own special way. In my newest book, “Pretty Hair,” I strive to teach young girls to find their own kind of beautiful, by showing them there is more than one type of hair that is pretty.
I have also expanded my love for sharing books to other media platforms such as YouTube. In 2019, I created the show, Read With Carylee, where I introduce my audience to children’s book authors, who share their books in their own voice. This helps me to continue to bring positive inspirational books to children, encouraging them to believe in their dreams and be the best version of themselves. It is my hope to continue to promote these positive messages, so that our children may grow to be strong individuals and lead the charge for a kinder and more loving future."
A little about my business:
Promoting children's literature and the diversification of children's bookshelves.
