About Me

I have been a teacher (from preschool age to college level) in some capacity for nearly 20 years.  One of my biggest passions is for children and adolescent literature.  My long-term goals are to teach children’s literature in college and to be a curriculum administrator & writer.

I am an avid reader of children's literature. I go to the library several times in a typical week. It is not uncommon to have as many as 100 books out at a time--from one library!  I get books out of 4 different local library systems.  Since I have started this blog, I spend countless hours researching and reading in an effort to highlight the best books for teachers, home-educators, parents, and children’s literature lovers. 

My favorite part of the day is sitting and reading to my children.  This site is for the busy educator, student, or parent. I write about the good books and give you ideas on how to use them. Then, you can spend more time reading and less time searching!
