I love reading a great book just as much as I love turning a good idea into a great story. I’ve also become known as a good source for book recommendations in my circle of family and friends.

Some of my favorite children’s books include; anything written by Dr. Seuss, The Pigeon series by Mo Willems, Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney, I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More by Karen Beaumont, Spookley The Square Pumpkin by Joe Troiano, and Too Small For Honey Cake by Gill Lobel. My most favorite book of all time is still Where The Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls (not on my shelf because I loaned it to my younger brother and it became one of his favorites too, so he never gave it back).

Below is a peek at my “grown up” bookshelf. And in an effort to set a good example for my daughter – “Why do you get to buy books when I have to borrow mine from the library?” – I have started using the local library more frequently. Moving forward you can look to my blog for updates on good books worth recommending.
