The desire to write has been a part of me since age four, which is also the age I started reading. (scratch that…. DEVOURING) books. I don’t think there’s a such thing as an expert in books since the writing and reading world is so rich and varied and infinite. But I am always and everywhere discovering new gems. And children’s books are something about which I’m very passionate. The whole world can be opened up to a child by simply offering them a warm lap, and a well written, beautifully illustrated adventure to share. I’d like to think I’ve developed a taste and recognition for those things which are good, noble, beautiful and true and I hope to pass these on to my own children.
This is what I want to write about. And while I of course, think I have superb taste in children’s literature, you are free to take my opinions with a bucket of salt… since that which delights one mind may find nothing but wrinkles in another. Still, I hope you discover in this blog a new title or author or idea which sparks your imagination. To encourage a love of reading in a child is nothing short of offering them a key to the universe.
