I’m Rachel and I’m passionate about children’s books and about children enjoying books and reading. I’m a single mother to four-year-old Sam and a primary school class teacher. For as long as I can remember, I have loved books. My childhood was shaped by them and today they are some of my most prized possessions. My favourite lessons are those where I’m sharing a book with the class. Books open up new worlds to us; let us learn more about ourselves and others; fire our imaginations; and make us think, laugh and cry. By writing this blog, I hope to share my passion and enthusiasm for reading and to get kids into books. On my home page, you can read my book reviews and recommendations. Many of the books I review have been generously donated by publishers in return for an honest review. Where this is the case, I thank them at the end of the review.
