You're here because you care.
Maybe your children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews are readers. They simply cannot get enough books. They read ALL THE TIME. They constantly push the checkout limit on their library cards. As they age and begin to choose their own books, and spend more time reading on their own, you're wondering exactly what types of content they might be consuming.
Or maybe you yourself are a reader, but most of the kids in your life don't seem to love reading like you do. You want them to experience that same joy that you find in books for yourself, but you aren't exactly sure how to do that. Maybe you've found that it's more difficult to shop for an engaging middle-grade novel than it is to choose picture books.
We know what you're going through.
We've been in your shoes. Our children are all avid readers, and they have all been influenced by books, both positively and negatively.
They've read books with inspiring heroes living in a very elaborately drawn world, and later they spent hours immersed in pretend play based on that book. Alternatively, they've encountered a scene in a book that was too mature for them, and later they were very shaken and had trouble sleeping for many nights.
And, yes, even our voracious readers have experienced reading slumps at times. They've experienced difficulty in finding a book that really engaged or interested them. Thankfully, those periods have been short-lived, but we know that some kids may develop a negative view of reading and books when they're required to read content that they don't care about.
We have the same goals.
Simply stated, we love books, and we believe that the stories we read are powerful. Great characters have an amazing impact on our own character. Our goal is to share this love with your children by engaging them with stories that are wonderfully written...stories with characters that are worth emulating...stories that will ultimately encourage them to grow in truth, wisdom, and virtue.
We want to partner with you.
We desire to be your family's trusted source for books. More importantly, we want to learn what makes your child's reading life unique...the books they love, the books they hate (gasp!), the topics they'd like to read about...you name it, we'd like to hear it! We're eager to get to know them so that we can choose great books just for them.
Additionally, we are passionate about providing peace of mind for parents and caregivers. Parenting is a weighty task, with a myriad of decisions to be made every day. Let us relieve a bit of your stress when you delegate the book choices to us.
