My blog is about the 2 of the most enriching things in a child’s life: reading books and travelling. Both of these are 2 sides of the same coin, in my opinion, as it’s seeing the world, learning about others and experiencing something new. I review kids picture books of all levels, which me and my children have read and enjoyed together (ergo, I’ll only review a book that I’ve enjoyed). Moreover, instead of a rating system, I put “Teachable Takeaways”, which include ideas for further learning and enrichment activities that can be done with your child using the concepts in this picture book.
I particularly love and look for books that feature diverse characters and issues of diversity and accessibility; kids encyclopedias; books that teach qualities like kindness and empathy; alphabet books; STEM concept books.
My blog also features my forthcoming picture book, “Wonder Walk”, to be published by Iguana Books in Spring 2019.
