About me

Hi! Thanks for stopping by!

My name is Sandra and I'm an avid reader. I have always enjoyed reading children's literature and having 8 kids gave me the perfect excuse to never stop doing it. I love to reread with my little ones wonderful books I have enjoyed reading to my older ones.

I'm always looking for new good books too. I like to read reviews and get recommendations, so don't hesitate in suggest a title you think I might enjoy.

Hope you find some books here you'd like to try next!


  1. Hi Sandra,

    I'm the author and publisher of the children's picture book series HAPPY TOBY. Would you be interested in reviewing the first two books of the series HAPPY TOBY-Toby and His Family and HAPPY TOBY-Toby Has a Party ?
    Please let me know. I could send you a hard cover copy of each of the books.

  3. Hello Sandra. I loved the review you did last year for my children's book, HIGH IN THE SKY (Skipping Stone Press December 2015) and would love for you to do a review of my soon-to-be-released children's book FOR NO REASON. For more information, please visit my website at http://www.skippingstonepress.net/for-no-reason-pre-order-your-copy-now/. I will be seeing the final production copy of FOR NO REASON this week and can either send you a copy of the book or a pdf review copy when it becomes available. Thank you.
