I want to start by saying that I am in no way affiliated with any publishing company or professional reviewer. I am simply the mother of a child who loves books and being read to who also loves to read myself. I have found that I generally have an opinion (about almost everything.) and I figure I might as well share it with others.
I am the mother of an amazing little boy who was born in April 2009. We have always read to him. I know many babies will not sit still for books, but we were blessed with a child who seems to share his parents love for them. Now he helps us turn pages and even "reads" back to us.
I received my degree in Early Childhood Education in 2005. I loved teaching my kids, and feel that books are an important part of any child's education. There is so much that can be taught to a child through books, and they don't even know they are learning. Styling a lesson plan around a well written children's book can be so easy and so much fun! My favorite week was always Dr. Seuss week! I could probably write a few BOOKS on Dr. Seuss lesson plans instead of a little blog!
I am blessed to be the wife of a wonderful husband! He supports me in everything I do, and I am shown every day how blessed I am. He serves his country in the United States Air Force, and I am so proud and honored to be married to my Hero.
I want to become a published author one day. I have written several children's books and am working on a novel, but getting a finished product published is not one of the easiest things I have ever done. I am hoping though, one day. One day soon if I have my way, since my beautiful son inspires me every day to write something new. :0) I have a big long list of "Books To Write" that I have been working on since I was a young teen, and the list has more than doubled since I had my son! So...if anyone knows a good, cheap way to be published...I'm all ears!
I hope you enjoy my blog. If you have a book that is your child's favorite or that you would like me to review, please let me know in my comments. I hope that I can bring some new favorites into your families library or your classroom!
Thanks for reading!
