Kids BookShelf

Children's' literacy is not only important but a big part of my life.  

Motherhood has made my love for books even stronger. So, with the help of my children, we compiled a list of our favorite books to share with you. 

This section of the website is dedicated to my Grandma Bru - who kept me interested in books from a young age.

See something we need to add to our list? Let us know!

And see more of our favorites by following along on Pinterest!
