Balancing the number of books in our house with bookshelf space is a mathematical problem! We consider shelving space prime real-estate and in order to make the most use of what we’ve got, we limit our books to the “gems”. You know, those books that make you feel something, the ones that you read over and over again. Books worthy of worn pages and dirty finger prints. As a kindergarten teacher (and children’s lit. enthusiest), picture books are my life. Fiction, non-fiction, poetry, wordless…you name it, I love it! So I thought, this might be the perfect place to share my family’s “gems” with you!
