All you have to do is look to your bookshelf.

Have we met? I'm Sam!

I am your kid-lit loving tour guide around these parts. Nothing makes me happier than cuddling on the floor with my daughter, even just for one quiet moment and reading a book.

I'm so happy you're here, because parenting without a community is hard and I don't want to do it alone either.
