Parents, have you met Mem Fox?

Written by published on Mon, 12/22/2014 - 5:35pm

Mem Fox is the author of many (many!) picture books for children.  I have always been a big fan of hers (so has Miss Kate!), and I particularly enjoyWhere is the Green Sheep? and Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes,both of which I have used in storytime.

But, not so long ago, based off of a recommendation, I discovered her books for adults.  I read Reading Magic: Why Reading Aloud to Our Children Will Change Their Lives Forever, which I would now absolutely recommend to parents (both current and future!), caregivers, and anyone working with children.  

Her website is also a great resource, which includes information about her and her books as well as specific content for parents, writers, teachers, children, and more!
