I’ve been a book lover all my life and I can’t remember a time I didn’t have my nose in a book. I spent three years working on my Masters in Children’s Literature and as the end approached I realized how much I was going to miss discussing books, both on an academic level and for pleasure. With this blog I am hoping to continue to expand my understanding of the impact books have on the lives of children and young adults. We’ll look back at favourites from our own childhood bookshelves and examine new favourites for children and young adults. I hope you will join me and share the books you loved as a child and those the children in your life are currently enamoured with.
