Hello, my name is Stephanie

"Stories are no mere diversions to occupy us on rainy days...They are a type of magic spell - perhaps the most powerful in existence - and their effect is to summon possibilities." - from Sophie Quire and the Last Storyguard written by Jonathan Auxier.

Stories have always held such powerful magic for me.  They have always been a means of filling my imagination to the brim.  The importance of reading to our children and of reading for pleasure is incredibly significant.  Sometimes we can be bogged down going to the bookstore or the library with the myriad of choices available.  Through the reviews on my site, I hope to introduce you to new books, authors, and illustrators to expand your searches and find stories that will connect to the young readers in your life.  You will find my reviews here on the blog as well as on Net Galley, Goodreads, and Amazon.  You will also find additional content on my Instagram which you can link to at the top of the page.

Happy Reading!
