The Almost Librarian

Valerie Baartz, grad school student and mother of two young children, has combined her background in Early Childhood Education, her work in Library Science, and her own experience to produce a snappy blog with great recommendations and comments about children's books. The site is chock-full of great links to early childhood sites, early literacy information, and reading lists. She recently featured my books, which I'm delighted to mention! Check out her site by clicking here: The Almost Librarian.
