Thanks for joining me! I have been working in international school libraries for more than thirty years and been an IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) librarian suggesting books for the pleasure of reading as well as for inquiry.

In my years of working as a librarian in Japan, parents and teachers have often sought out advice on books for children from diverse backgrounds and English ability. This blog makes available my expertise on children’s books for parents and teachers alike.

I will be regularly updating recommendations of books–new and old–and why they are inspiring reads for young children.
