I am a 30-something, stay-at-home mom to 3 wonderful daughters. I’ve been married to my best friend for 11 years and counting. I’ve loved to read ever since I can remember and hope to instill that love in my daughters. They get read to everyday, so you may see quite a few children’s books reviews from me – I probably read more children’s books than anything else! On any given day you might catch me reading anything from “Goodnight Moon” to “Bread and Jam for Francis” to “the BFG” to “Midwives” (but not that last one to the kids!). I hope through this blog I will not only be able to give others some good reading suggestions, but to also get some good reading suggestions in return. Join the fun and share with us in our passion for reading and books!

    Ga! Now I really am in the twilight zone! So, Leah, I randomly found your sister’s blog recently… what a crazy small world!

    Hi Leah. I just left a message for you mother saying this, but I’ll say it again for you. I am also a mother of 3 daughters. Mine were all under 3 for several months. It was hard when they were little, but as they grew it was fun having them all close together. Of course 3 teenage daughters at once is not always smooth. When our youngest daughter was 11 we were blessed with our 4th daughter. So for the past 10 years, I’ve been the mother of 4 daughters. What a ride!

    booklogged – hi! i just read your comment. i love having girls, but like you mentioned – everyone warns us about the teenage years. i will definitely have to rely on God’s wisdom! you know, if we ever had a fourth i’d probably hope for another girl. not because i don’t like boys, but because if just seems another girl would fit in with our family. is your “baby” close with your other girls?

    Hi Leah — I’ll be teaching 2 year olds soon in a Mom’s Day Out program — what books do you recommend for that age? It’s been awhile — my baby is now 14!
