Kids, Books and Me
This blog is being created to share with my friends and family members the joys of children's literature. Some of my earliest fondest memories include the books that were read to me and the books I read when I was in school. Authors like Lucy M. Montgomery, Lois Lensky and Louisa May Alcott were all favourites. Then there were the books I read to my children, the books I read with students at school and now the journey begins again with introducing books to my grandchildren! In the last year I have become even more familiar with local, national, newly published and some forgotten, but newly reacquainted authors. My personal preferences are books for children that are inspirational, provide positive character building examples and are edifying. I will be exploring various genres, books for a variety of age and developmental levels, and make suggestions for books for struggling and gifted readers. If you have any questions or suggestions for me, please let me know and I will address those issues as they arise. I am also interested in seeing posts of what your favorite kids books were and what your current favorite books are. I will also be doing book reviews of books I read, so check in from time to time to see what is new!
