“Richer than me you can never be;
I had a mother who read to me.”

Meet Nannie


I’m a wife, mother, grandmother, and teacher. I had the good fortune to be raised as a reader, with weekly visits to our local public library. My love of reading and children have dove-tailed many times throughout my life – as a babysitter, a tutor, a mom, a Children’s Tour docent at the St. Louis Public Library, along with many years as an elementary school library volunteer.

I continued to share this love of books and reading with children ages 2 to 12 for the last 16 years as an elementary school librarian.

Though I’ve chosen the books listed in these posts because they are favorites, they’ve also been tried-and-true tested by the children I taught, and by my grandchildren Riley, Jack, Campbell Michelle and Fletcher.
