This blog was born in 2013 when my daughters were 6 and 2. At that point I posted something on Facebook about my crazy 6 year old daughter hitting a point in her reading that I feel the need to be reading the books that she plows through. One thing that is very difficult with having a child who reads above grade level is finding books that engage her and yet are at the right emotional level for her. A friend commented that I should start a blog and voila! Got that bee in my bonnet and here it is.
Since then, this blog has become my place to talk about children’s books, what we are reading, what we want to read, and why my kids like certain books. There are times when it is my input and there are times when I get a lot of insight from my girls. I have also found that this is an important place to compare books out there, find resources to help young readers grow, and to shine a light on books that you might not hear of without the help of a crazy book lady like me.
I love books and am thrilled that I have passed that love on to my girls. If I can open a child’s eyes to a book that they love, then my day has been made.
