Parenting a Reader – Part 2

Last year I wrote a post about my beliefs on censorship when raising a child. At the time Baby Chick was 13 years old. She was at an age where I was trying to figure out how to handle a daughter on the cusp of maturity, too old for early readers, but possibly too young […]

Non-Book Distractions for Birdie Bookworm

I’m happy to announce, I’m finally feeling more like myself. I’m reading regularly and I’m even blogging/reviewing again.
