Welcome to Book Wisdom

 This blog is for parents, grandparents, educators, and adults who are looking for quality children's literature. In today's mass market and media extravaganza, it has become increasingly difficult to maneuver the piles of books and options to read or view them in.

Tomorrow, I begin a new venture with Grand Junction, Colorado's, KKCO, News 11, Today anchor Terri Chappell.  It is our beginning segment on local, regional, and national children's books.  In these segments, I will be talking about children's books that you may or may not have known about.  I will be sharing books by new and upcoming authors , and well-known authors. 

So what's the purpose of this blog?  First, it's a place where I will further review books where air time is limited.  Second, it's a place for adults buying children's literature are provided insights into what is a high quality book as seen  from the view-point of a child development specialist and an author.  

And why does this matter?  We have all heard the phrase "You are what you eat."  In my professional experience, I know that the same is true for developing children. What adults choose to entertain and help children grow with can either be helpful or not so much. Children are priceless.

I look forward to sharing about children's developmental needs and great reads!

Happy Reading,

Happy to be here, and see this site. At least for myself, I am what I read, and never more than when I was a reading child.
Happy adventure to a worthy vehicle!
