Welcome to Auntie Karen's Book Pile, a brand new blog about books for children. There is always a great big pile of books for children in my house. There's a pile on my dresser, a pile on my coffee table in the living room, a pile on my bedside table, a pile in whatever bag I'm carrying that day, and always two or three piles on the trunk at the end of my bed. This doesn't even count the piles on the bookshelves.
So it's time I shared some of the pile with other people. Join me to hear about books I think you should know about.
Maybe you're a parent looking for a good book for your child. Maybe you're a teen trying to figure out what to read next. Maybe you're someone who has to buy another baby-shower gift. Maybe, like me, you're an aunt. Someone who gets to offer all kinds of fun and love to children who live with your siblings or friends - the very best kinds of kids, I think.
A lot of people ask me for recommendations for their kids. I hope this blog will help.
Whoever you are and why ever you are here - I hope you'll like reading about books I think are just great. There are a lot, so check back often. Enjoy!
