Some of my earliest memories include being read to by my mother and grandmother. My favorite bed growing up was the double bed I had as an elementary schooler with a built-in bookcase in the headboard. I kept all my favorite Bobbsey Twins books on that shelf, and I would read until late into the night with just the light coming through the crack in my door to see by.
I don't think I was ever as avid a book collector as I became when I had my first child. So desperate was I to raise children who love reading, I began collecting as many wonderful children's books that crossed my path as I could, starting with many of my own favorites from childhood. I've become relatively picky with my children's books over the last several years. There are just too many good ones to choose from. Why settle for less than a fabulous illustration or a great story. I hope to bring many of our favorites to this space and also hear of some new ones along the way.
Join me, won't you!
