Kristen Olsen’s Writing

The writing genres I most enjoy, and practice, are poetry and children’s books. My poetry has appeared in the Greyrock Review, and I have written a collection of poems inspired by living in unique places such as Hawaii, Indonesia, Poland and Kosovo.I write my children’s picture books so my readers can find many ways of learning within the story through sight words, phonics, singing and movement, rhythm, call and response and dancing.I create stories that give young readers the pleasure of reading first, so they are motivated to be lifelong readers and learners.
