I am a certified Reading Specialist and have worked for almost two decades in grades 1-12 teaching reading. In all those years and, various grade assignments, I have purchased hundreds – maybe thousands – of picture books and used them to create my lessons. I have also presented at Literacy conferences and taught numerous courses for teachers in my school district. Many of my articles on reading have been published in scholarly journals and my district’s PTO newsletter.
Most recently, I have combined my knowledge of teaching reading and my love of books with my new interest in interior design. It seems that with every assignment I do with designing a room, all I can think of is how I can squeeze in a little spot for books and reading. So I gladly share with you what I know about children’s books and places to read them. Let’s have some fun while you and your children or students snuggle down and enjoy some books together..
