About Angela

Angela Henderson

Angela Henderson resides in Dallas, Texas, where she teaches middle school English Language Arts & Reading and is a mother of three. Exploring children’s books for twelve years with her own children during numerous “story times” at the local library and reading hundreds of books to her children, her passion for quality children’s literature led her to write her own work. After creating her blog and Facebook page, Kidsbook Friends, and her Instagram, KidsBookFriends_Instabooks, she’s been able to share her love of literature with over a thousand followers by featuring authors and books. She’s thrilled to introduce her own creative story where magical moments lead to positive perspectives.

Interesting things from the Interview

Looking for a fun way to end the school year with your students during at-home learning? How about an Virtual Author Visit at their end-of-the-year party *with a Personal Author Visit later? Your students will be the FIRST to hear my new book, Isaac & Izzy’s Tree House, as my publisher is releasing it May 2020. Let me bring the PARTY to your school event. *For schools outside DFW, if we cannot schedule a personal visit, I’d love to do our virtual party now and a special FaceTime Live event with your students next school year. My publisher can ship signed books to your school!

If you’d like to have Angela visit your school contact Angela at
