A children's book a day, keeps the scary monster away. I am a Librarian and created this blog to share my love of children's books with the rest of the world. I will include my comments on children's books that I love and have shared with others.
I have shared many of these books with my students during storytime when I was the Librarian at the St. Benedict the Moor K to 8 school.
