Creating this blog has introduced me to so many wonderful people, from the parents, grandparents, teachers and librarians who read my book reviews to authors and illustrators, literary agents, editors and other great folks in the publishing industry. It has been inspirational and educational every step of the way and expanded on the 17 years experience I have as a children's bookseller, deepening my knowledge of and love for kid's books. I am always happy to answer questions about books via email, but my sister-in-law, the same brilliant person who proposed that I start this blog back in 2008, suggested I offer the service of making personalized reading lists on my blog. Helping kids learn to love books, putting the right book in the right hand and calling attention to excellent authors and illustrators is my passion, assembling personalized reading lists seems like a great way to aggregate my reviews for specific readers. And, it seems like a great way to make your jobs as parents a bit easier. I know that, for many of you, pre-reading your children's books can be a full time job and that reading reviews of books for them is almost as time consuming. Let me do the job for you! In the year since I started offering this service, I have created over 100 lists and each one is as interesting and exciting as the next to compile. I have made lists for kids in Kuwait for whom English is a second language. I have made a booklist for a reader who loves inventions and spy stories. I have created booklists for reluctant readers and one really great list of books for a family to read around the campfire while on vacation. I especially love making lists for voracious readers because I love the challenge of finding books they haven't read yet! If this piques your interest, please email me for more details and pricing at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If I can't provide a specific service for you but you like what I'm doing and want to support my efforts, I have added the "Donate" button to my blog. It has always been very important to me to keep advertising off of my blog and I am uncomfortable introducing money into the equation now, but I feel like the time and the intentions are right and hope you do too. Thanks for your understanding and, as always, thanks for reading!
