Welcome to a book blog for discerning children and their grown-ups!
The posts listed on the right of this page offer reviews and recommendations about board books, picture books and chapter books.
My name’s Latham; I do the curating, with the considerable help of my five children. I’ve taught at the middle school, high school, college, and university levels, and written for journals, anthologies, and newspapers.
My B.A. and M.A. are both in English literature; my PhD is in Cultural Studies, which I adore with a kind of obsessive, frustrated love that some might call unhealthy but I call easily-managed-with-medication. My doctorate focussed on gender and popular culture, and it had such a big impact on me that it guides most of my decisions, including major parenting stuff. Yes, “stuff” is one of the fancy academic terms I learned during my 9 years of higher education.
