More about Susan

Hi! I'm Susan, a wife, a mom and a recently retired elementary school librarian with 22 years of experience. One of my greatest joys is to connect kids with a perfect book, which then leads them to a lifelong love of learning. Through my blog, I'm hoping to reach parents, their children and teachers to help them find those special books. I’m also hoping to offer some tips and techniques to use with your children as you read aloud.


    1. A Turkey For Thanksgiving is my favorite picture book. I have Gooseberry Park with me in the car to read. Now that I see it is top on your list, I am excited! Great post!

I appreciate your comments!
