$50 Amazon gift card and children's author Connie Colon

Let's find out what the cool kids are reading...

Connie Colon began reading to her son ever since she was pregnant, which led her to trying her hand at writing children’s books from home. She's a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).


Connie had the unique opportunity to have been selected to work with award-winning kid-lit superstar, Jerry Spinelli, during a week-long Highlights writers workshop in Chautauqua, New York in 2006. Talk about an honor that must have been! A magazine workshop that week sparked an idea for an article for FACES magazine that turned into a monthly feature called “Dear Tommy” that ran for over seven years. Connie has also written for other children’s magazines such as Fun For Kidz, Appleseeds, and a short piece for Highlights.

Being an artist, Connie tends to “think visually” as she writes, often picturing her stories as TV shows or movies. She hopes to develop her chapter books into animation one day. If you're going to dream, you may as well DREAM BIG!


School Rules is the first book in Connie's Principal Kidd series, a children’s book for ages 7-11.

Kids will not only get a kick out of this funny story, but they might also want to become the principal of their schools... if you can picture that!

Eleven-year-old whiz, Oliver Kidd, had no trouble using his genius IQ to skip grades and zoom through the accelerated college program.

But after landing a job as the world’s first kid principal back at his old elementary school, Oliver faces sabotage from the jealous vice principal, Mr. Dagger, along with challenges of a kid in charge of the teachers, parents, and students.

Good thing his trusty sidekick and school mascot, Chelsea the chicken, is on his side. Principal Kidd scores points with the students with his new rules, until the town health inspector shows up and threatens to shut the doors on Eggshell Elementary.

Join in on the giggles and mayhem as Oliver Kidd and his friends since kindergarten try to save Eggshell Elementary.
