Make your voice heard. 


You're raising kind & brilliant leaders. The resources on BFL save you time, energy, and remind you that you're not alone.
 

99% of my work is free and accessible to the public for parents and educators who can't afford a paywall. And the lowest pledge unlocks a ton of delicious articles that will make your brain do somersaults.


Everyone gets:

  • Educator & Caregiver Support: Connect with us in the Student Ignition Society Facebook Group - where educators and childcare providers can discuss how they incorporate BFL resources into their curriculum and daily routine.  
  • Monthly Book Collections on the Books For Littles website.
  • Raising Luminaries Discussions, Rants & Calls To Action Articles & calls-to-action about smashing the kyriarchy from the Raising Luminaries Facebook page
  • All Things Kidlit in Books For Littles Articles & updates about kidlit in the Books For Littles Facebook group


Supporter Shenanigans!

As a Patreon supporter, you get:
 

  • The Collaborator Laboratory
    Get access to the Collaborator Laboratory, where you can submit requests and vote for the topics and challenges that are most important to you.
  • Sneak Peeks for Book-Lists-In-Progress: Patreon-only access to my book-lists-in-progress featuring expanded notes (and unfiltered salty language) on our monthly themes and my responses for the most popular topics in the Collaborator Laboratory.
  • Exclusive Patreon-Only Articles: Access to the full archive of our locked Patreon-only posts, including: The Smashing Wealth Inequality series that helps you raise resilient, courageous kids, sneak-peeks for upcoming posts on BooksForLittles.com, monthly best-of booklists, video analysis of problematic books, and email updates when I create any new articles.
  • Peace of Mind

    With more supporters like you, the odds that we can keep BFL going without burning out increases exponentially. THANK YOU.
  • Prioritized Responses From Me!

    As our readership grows I don't have time to respond to every single message, and it takes me a few weeks to respond to things.

    But since you're an awesome person making this work possible, yours are the first messages I respond to when I catch up on email.

    I also reach out to each Collaborator a couple times each year to touch base, via Patreon private message.


LUMINARY
$15 or more per month


We are the boots on the ground.


Shenanigans include:

  • The same rewards as lower tiers, plus…  

  • The Luminary Brain Trust

    Want to connect with me and our most dedicated kyriarchy-smashers?

    Welcome to The Luminary Brain Trust, a closed Facebook group where we're tacking in-depth discussions, troubleshoot challenges, and work together in solidarity.

    This is where you can suggest new ideas for the future of BFL, work through challenges you're having, get support and solidarity, vent about the hard parts and celebrate the good parts about raising kind & brilliant little humans.

    This group is new as of November 2019 - we're still finding our way and making it the space we need. I REALLY hope you'll join us and help me create something awesome here.


CO-CONSPIRATOR
$50 or more per month

Want to keep BFL free and accessible for all?

Spend less time on redundant research and more time smashing the kyriarchy.


I tend to freak out when you guys support BFL at this above-and-beyond level. I tell all my friends about you.



Shenanigans include:

  • The same rewards as lower tiers, plus…

  • Ethical Peace Of Mind
    Have a clear conscience when you repackage, find inspiration, and spin off the stuff you learn in BFL in your personal blog and career assignments.

  • Super-Priority Attention
    This could go unsaid, but OBVIOUSLY I'll prioritize your requests. Once a month, send me private requests for advice or book lists and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

    I'm not just willing to hear from you, I am eager to help! Because you are a rockstar and I like you.

  • Let's meet up, if that's your thing

    If we’re ever in the same city, let’s get together over coffee (or whatever) to brainstorm how BFL can become even more mega-awesome!   


Illuminati
$175 or more per month

1 of 2 spots available

Want 1-on-1 guidance?


We're in cahoots.

You're an author, consultant, educator, librarian, literary specialist,   running an organization, or are a parent who needs private, 1-on-1 consulting. 


Shenanigans include:


  • 1-on-1 Consulting
    30 minutes of my undivided attention each month on a topic of your choice, via chat/email/video, or whatever.

  • Ethical Accountability Guidance
    Confidence that you're taking steps to create an inclusive organization. I'll give you gentle, honest advice when your material or policies need tweaking.

  • I Shall Sing Your Praises
    Did you see how many things I do? A LOT OF THINGS. And I'm happy to boost your organization and tell everyone about it (with full transparency, and only if your organization really is awesome and right for readers).
    Learn more on the BFL services page.

  • Emotional Labor & Experienced Guidance
    I get a LOT of people who just want to connect with me for phone calls 1-on-1 but GOSH I have childcare to pay for while you pick my brain.

    This covers my expenses while I give you access to years of my expertise, research, and do the emotional labor dance of gently addressing all your questions.

    From there, we'll create a plan for how you can move forward with your project.

This is mostly contract-style work outside of patreon, but I have it listed here for reference. Contact me for availability and to find out how becoming an Illuminati can work for you.
