I read 39 books in 2018 in Goodreads’ Annual Reading Challenge. Here are my 10 favorites.

Now that my kids are teens (sniff) and need less handholding to get through every second of the day, I’m trying to read more books instead of spending all my “down time” reading Facebook updates or watching Netflix. So at the start of 2018, I joined Goodreads’ Annual Reading Challenge which allowed me to set […]

10 growth mindset books for kids that challenge them to try harder and think bigger

Failure is hard for kids, but it’s essential to their growth. That’s why teaching growth-mindset for kids has become so popular lately in parenting circles. Parents are increasingly moving away from helicoptering (yay!) and instead, giving their kids the freedom and encouragement to try new things, put in the effort, learn from their mistakes, and […]

Why we need libraries: Twitter claps back against a truly stupid op-ed

It was only a week or so ago that I was reading Carolines article about 20 free summer activities for kids, and thinking how wonderful that there were so many mentions of various events at local libraries. And then this morning, I laughed as I stumbled upon a a poorly conceived, poorly reasoned, entirely unsourced […]

Beyond Waldo: 6 gorgeously artful look-and-find books for kids

I’m lucky to have a job that allows me to the opportunity to preview countless kids’ books each year. But admittedly, it often feels like a neverending stream of the same-old. However recently, I’ve noticed a trend of well-designed, beautifully executed look-and-find books for kids that really are standouts. What I love so much about […]

How to get kids excited about reading: 8 expert, research-backed tips and tactics.

Sadly, studies have shown that toward the end of elementary school, kids start losing their enjoyment of learning. As parents, that really concerns us. Especially because we all know a child’s natural state is to be excited about exploring the world around them. So of course we want to know, what’s going on there? And […]

3 fantastic children’s books to get the kids to read before they become hit movies.

There are three fantastic children’s books being made into movies for release this fall and early 2018.

8 must-read summer reading books for tweens and teens who want to stay woke

Lately, as my kids are getting older and the world has gotten (ahem) a little crazier, my 10- and 12-year-old have been questioning what’s going on.

5 Reasons You Should Be Reading the Classics

Shakespeare, Bronte, Austen, Dickens. They are just some of the few authors whose books are entitled to be classics. We’re often forced into reading some of the classics as part of our school studies, but if you’re not reading them as an adult, for fun, you’re missing out on everything you gain from them.

Cape Town, City of Language and Books

When you walk up to The Book Lounge at 71 Roeland Street in the Eastern Precinct of Cape Town, you won’t see a flashy sign. You won’t see a welcoming entrance with big glass doors. You probably won’t even see it the first time you try to find it and you’ll likely walk right past it. You might, however, see a man or two who shouldn’t be there loitering outside, perhaps a blanket hoisted over his shoulders if its cold, or maybe a dog he has befriended sitting beside him. On the other hand, you mig...

Do You Pack a Book When You Fly? (And Enter for a Chance to Win a Kindle e-Reader!)

Whenever I travel on a long haul flight, I’d like to bring some reading materials with me.  Sometimes it is hugely satisfying to immerse yourself in a good book.  The only problem:  I like to pack light, but physical books can weigh you down!  Imagine if you want to read Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.  The title is the lengthiest book in the series, with over 700+pages.  The book is the size of a brick, and it’d be a pain to lug it around anywhere. The Solution(s) I’ve since come u...
