I love recommending books!

I write a weekly kid's lit newsletter for Book Riot called The Kids Are All Right. It's packed with features, new releases, book recommendations, and photos of my rabbit. You can sign up here.

Feel free to check out my book lists below (links will lead you to my posts on Book Riot), or send me a note via the Contact link for recommendations!

My rabbit Izzy loves to nestle in the bin we use to hold our library books!
