The Author of Wicked Epic Real • BRANDING, DESIGN & MARKETING COACH • Children's literacy Advocate

BookTurnip is a project I started because I am passionate about children's literacy. Reviewing new releases and the amazing minds behind them is a dream come true, not only keeping my own creativity sparking, but  also providing a mom's perspective on how they can be used to communicate with our children. While I am in love with reading, I'm simply rabid about using books to begin dialogs - giving kids and adults a wonderful jumping off point for further discussions.
