ABOUT PAULA M. KARLL
Paula M. Karll is an award-winning children's author, an avid educator with over 10 years of experience working with grades K through12, and the Founder of “Donate Knowledge,” a new not for profit (NFP) 501 (c)(3) organization created to donate books to those less fortunate communities, to promote foster literacy and inclusion awareness. As a wife and mother, Paula has direct experience navigating challenges families face every day. Paula uses the art of storytelling and her love of literacy to offer actionable tools and practical solutions to parents & teachers. Paula is a mentor, motivational speaker, children’s literacy advocate, diverse-learner educator & strategist, a member of the Council for Exceptional Children, a member of the Black Caucus of the American Library Association, and a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). As a graduate from Trinity Christian College with a master’s degree in Special Education, Paula has extensive experience working with parents, educators, and schools to help provide supportive services for diverse learners.
Education opens the doors of opportunity and books allow children to explore, learn through identifying with characters and content. Representation is important in the books that are accessible to our children. It is important that we celebrate things we have in common while embracing our unique individuality. As a member of a diverse family, Paula emphasizes the importance of love, kindness, and inclusiveness. Families come in different shapes and forms yet are bonded by the experiences they create together. Reading is one of the very significant ways Paula has connected with her family and her community. The Adventures of Ellie and Eve is her gift to other families developed during the pandemic...a time that many families had to pivot and engage children creatively at home. Ellie Meets The New Baby received the Mom's Choice Award.
