    Hello Jennifer,
    I am reaching out to you to introduce my website with stories for children (in pdf, flipbook, and audio formats), braille books, reviews of some popular children’s books-all accompanied by learning tools and activity suggestions. I also believe the website could serve as a platform for authors and illustrators to share stories and art, get feedback from readers, improve, and create books and art readers love.

    The website is in its infancy and I plan to add more content in future. I would love to hear your thoughts on the site and would really appreciate any feedback or feature suggestions to improve.

    Thanks a bunch for your time and support.

    Best Regards.
