Kim has read for audiences ranging in ages from 2 to 92 at numerous schools, libraries, teachers meetings, nursing homes, daycares, birthday parties and church events. Young and old alike love the way Kim brings her books “to life” and many families make sure to pack her Read-Along CDs before leaving for trips. As the result of her vivacious presentations, Kim was invited to be a Featured Author at the 2005 Alabama Reading Conference in Huntsville and at the 2006 Southeastern Reading Conference in Mobile. She has also spoken at the 2007 Alabama Festival of the Book in Montgomery.

Many schools and organizations have also started requesting that Kim do her inspiring “From Hurdles to Ladders” talk for children as well as adults. Kim says that while it is an extreme honor it is also very humbling to receive favorable reviews from all of her audiences.

Kim adapts her
sessions for what is needed at each particular function; whether it is for 15 minutes or for 1 hour and 30 minutes. She has just as much fun reading for small groups as she does for several hundreds at one time and her silly charm can win over even the most reluctant of readers/listeners.

“I want kiddos of all ages to see and hear how much FUN reading can be!  I love to go to schools where I read to an auditorium or gym full of kids and we have so much fun that the principal comes in to see what in the world is going on!!! I always just laugh and say, ‘Oh, it’s OK—we’re just reading!’ The kids LOVE it! Equally, I have just as much fun when I go to a nursing home to read for the Young at Heart and see the twinkle in their eyes and the child-like wonder on their sweet faces as they listen to each and every word!”

“Research and practice show that one simple activity — reading aloud — is the best way to prepare children for learning to read and to keep them reading as they learn and grow. Reading aloud helps children develop the language skills they will use in school and throughout their lives.  Good books can inspire children, expand their imaginations, and help them become better learners. Teachers and parents can encourage reading in many ways, but experts agree that choosing good books is an essential first step. Children need books that will captivate their attention and show them the joy reading can bring. The more they like to read, the more they will read.

Kim Dozier’s books are among the good books that are worthy to be read aloud.  Each book has an entertaining story built around character traits that are important in the education of all children: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, citizenship.  It is rare when you can find books that children will like to read that contain themes to build character in their lives.  

When Kim reads these books to children you can see the smiles on their faces, hear the giggles resulting from story situations, and hear the children ask for more at the conclusion.  Kim captivates her audience and shares the character traits in her stories with such a pleasant, warm demeanor that children like what they hear and want more.  She inspires with character building stories and proves that reading aloud to children is the best way to prepare them and keep them reading.”
