About
Author Sharla Feldscher is often called a “Kid believer.” Nothing gives her more pleasure than encouraging young people to believe in themselves and pursue their dreams. It all began for Sharla when she was just a kid herself and discovered the joys of playing with younger children. Her career began as a kindergarten teacher in Philadelphia when she also started writing about her unique ideas of creative fun with young children.

Sharla has written seven books, including two KIDFUN books published by HarperCollins and translated to German and Russian. Her writing credits include dozens of articles in Grade Teacher Magazine, New York Family Magazine, L.A. Family Magazine, South Jersey Magazine and, for eight years, a weekly KIDFUN page in the Philadelphia Daily News—where she had hundreds of children serve as volunteer kid reporters.

A frequent guest on the talk show circuit, Sharla has produced KIDFUN segments for Philadelphia’s #1 radio station, KYW Newsradio and on WTFX-TV with Phillies and Mets legendary pitcher, Tug McGraw playing KIDFUN with children. Sharla currently has a regular KIDFUN feature on television on PHL 17’s Morning News in Philadelphia.

In addition to her work as creator of KIDFUN, Sharla is an award-winning public relations professional with over three decades of experience, and she now partners with her daughter Hope at the Feldscher Horwitz Public Relations firm. She has created a division of the business called “Young People with Big Hearts”, where Sharla serves as a volunteer publicist for children who support the community. She worked with Rocco Fiorentino starting when he was 10 years old as he was an ambassador for The Little Rock Foundation, that supports other children who are blind, like Rocco. A jazz artist and producer, she was proud to have Rocco sing on “Sesame Street” and tell Elmo it’s okay to be blind; he was a reporter for FOX-TV and attended the American Idol Finals in Hollywood, reporting on local and national television and he was the recipient of numerous awards. This was all part of Sharla’s dedication to building awareness and recognition for Rocco as a role model for others.

Sharla’s motto is, “Success is a journey, not a destination.” Proud of her journey, nothing brings Sharla more pride than her family—husband Barry, daughters Amy Munro and her husband Scott, Hope Horwitz and her husband Joseph, and three granddaughters Ryan, Sari and Jaclyn. Sharla lives in Voorhees, New Jersey.
