Hi there! I’m Tonie, retired teacher, mama of 3, Grammie of 2, educational consultant, and now blogging about children’s books, parent resources, parenting tips, and embracing retirement life!

My family has now expanded to daughter-in-laws and grandchildren & we all live in New Jersey where all my kids are close by. My site was inspired by my beautiful grandchildren and I’m so glad you’re here!  

I’m on a mission to spread joy through helping your child  learn to “LOVE” reading  and hopefully help them thrive! I will hone in on children’s reading skills, and find their unique voice so they can succeed in school.

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”

Dr. Seuss

I’m an Educational Consultant for Usborne Books & More.
