Who am I?
First and foremost, I am a bona fide book lover. My favorite books are those written for grades 4-8 because they are funny, innocent, and magical. I don’t have enough hours in the day to read all the books I want to read, but I try. I consider reading books the most important part of what I do. I get to recommend books to the cutest 4-6 graders on the planet. It’s like playing matchmaker. When I make a match, I just want to smile all day.
Why do I blog?
My goal as a blogger is to help librarians, teachers, and parents find books that will appeal to their kids. You can’t possibly read them all and you need a good source to help you make informed decisions. Dollars spent on books are precious and you don’t want to waste any of them. Plus, you may only have one chance to turn a kid on to books.
What do I blog about?
Occasionally I blog about a topic related to running a school library, but books are, and will remain, my focus as a librarian. The best librarians only need one talent and that is knowing the books. I release a weekly blog with 8 recommended books in a specific book category. If you would like me to blog a list that interests you, send me an email.
