About

Dear readers;

Hello, my name is Mindi and I am a proud wife and mommy to four beautiful children. I was always passionate about finding ways to interact with my children that I could integrate into our busy schedules. One thing that I felt very strongly about was teaching my children to read at a young age and also to nurture a love of books in them.  I am here to share  innovative tips and tricks with you to use with your own child/children that not only educate them, but also are fun and easy to do no matter how busy your day is. In my spare time I love to hang out with my family, fiddle around on the computer and make new friends. I also enjoy cooking for my family and I write amazing children’s books.

Here’s my official bio, just in case you would like to know a bit more:

  1. Hi! You commented on my site so here I am! I am a teacher with a Reading Masters and was a librarian for 3 years. I have been reading to my two boys since the moment they came home from the hospital, so they are book lovers, like my hubby and me. Love the ideas for your site. Hopefully lots of parents will follow your suggestions. Have you ever picked up The Read Aloud Handbook by Jim Trelease? Will be back to visit…

    • Hello Liz and welcome! I’m glad you love the ideas here. I will keep them coming for you. It’s wonderful to get feedback from others, it really adds a lot to a site. I haven’t read The Read Aloud Handbook yet. Thanks for the recommendation, I’ll have to go and check it out.

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog. I thought I would drop by and see what yours was about. Reading… a great subject if I do say so myself. My mom would read to me before I was even born and everyone made fun of her. Well, when I was 6 mos old and able to point to the pictures in a book they weren’t laughing anymore! I have always enjoyed reading and still do. I usually have a few books going at the same time. Even now with my disability it may take me a bit longer but I still read. Love it.
    Hugs,
    Tammy

    • Thanks for your comment Tammy. You like to read several books at the same time? My son does that too, but I can’t seem to keep it all straight that way. It’s wonderful when a mother takes a hold of teaching their child. The results really show.

  3. Thanks for the positive feedback on my blog. I really appreciated it. What a fun blog you have here. I was reading before I entered school. My daughters always devoured books (one of them, literally, before she learned to read!)

    • My oldest son loved books too!
      He would often gnaw on the books in his crib until the edges were rounded.
      I suppose that’s how he got his fiber since he never had any constipation problems. ;~>

  4. Hi Mindi,
    Always nice to see someone so passionate about something they start a blog about it!! I’m glad to have found your blog about reading to kids from a young age. For me, reading with the 3 year old daughter is unquestionably among the most joyful aspects of parenting. When we read together…it’s more than just making sense of words…it’s like we discover each other and see the world around us in a new light every time. I just finished reading Emma Walton Hamilton’s Raising Bookworms and her book is filled with resources that parents and educators can use to associate reading with pleasure. Hope to share and exchange ideas and tips with you.

    When you read to your baby, life changes!

  5. Hi Mindi, stopping by the “check” you out after your visit to my blog. And what do I find but my favorite subject. I’m an avid reader who has tried her hardest to instill the love of words in her children too.

    I’ve found that teaching the love of words is so much fun (and easy too) when you make it fun and start it early. My son’s favorite is to count my reps while I work out, or we name the body parts that we are working on. I’m proud to say that he is 2 and has great enunciation, vocabulary, comprehension and “reads” at least an hour a day. Then demands book after book at nap and bedtimes.

  6. Hi Mindi,

    I just signed up for Twitter today and somehow stumbled across your tweets. I’m so glad I did. What a remarkable woman! Thank you for making such an impact on children’s literacy. I look forward to following your tweets in the future.

  7. Hi Mindi,
    My Parents raised my on books and used stories and parables to get their point across to me as a child. As an Early Childhood Educator I love books as well as the art of oral story telling.
    I suppose it was the Native American roots…who knows, but I have a love of reading I can’t shake…and it’s catchy.
    I’m glad I found you….

    • Sure! You should check out the posts labeled “Bookworm Basics” as those are geared for the really little ones.

      Also, thank you so much for leaving a comment.

  8. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is great blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.
