Purpose of this Blog...

You may have noticed that not all books are equal in capturing children's imaginations and in cultivating those innocent, tender souls. My goal is to help you find the ones that do!

A Friday Photo: Just Can't Put This Book Down!

7-year-old Gabriella walking through Sprouts market

My goddaughter Gabriella's Mommy sent me this photo and  told me: "It just warms my heart to think she cannot put her book down long enough to walk through a store. After all the sadness last year of learning how to read.  Could I possibly be raising a book worm???"
