My love of children's literature started a lot earlier than my actual graduation to motherhood. I worked at a Barnes and Noble bookstore starting when I was 17; first in the cafe where I met a friend who would become a college room-mate, future play date partner, and one of my favorite book sharers. My friend Maria and I have been buying and saving children's literature from our days at Barnes, which was many years before we both became moms.
It was only natural, then, that when I moved away a year and a half ago, that we found a need for a children's literature review blog. The Well-Ready Sleepyhead was born out of the many facebook messages we'd send back and forth, like, "Have you read this?" or, "You have to get this at the library", or our favorite, "I LOVE these illustrations...."
We've had this blog for a number of months but are now ready to go public. Our author bios are up, and there are many posts to peek through. What are you waiting for? Go find a great summer read your kids will love!
