Hello lovelies! My name is Emma, and I am the primary author of From My Shelf to Yours.

I am currently enrolled in college as an English Education major- it’s not hard to guess that reading is one of my major hobbies. Amidst the craziness that is college exams, I realized something. In order to be fully excited about my major when things get rough, I need to refocus myself on my original love. That is, heart warming literature and its relation to children.

.From My Shelf to Yours is a book review blog especially focusing on children’s literature (though some other thoughts do wander in from time to time.) I believe that picture books are an essential part of childhood development, and their value is often unappreciated. They are a practical, easily integrated part of our lives, so why do we choose them so casually? Start reading to the youth in your lives with intentionality. Whether you are a parent, a teacher, an older sibling or simply a book enthusiast, there is bound to be something here for you.

.This blog is a fairly new start up, but I hope to continue to quickly grow it with authenticity and commitment. So, here I am. Meandering through my favorite stories and sharing them with you all, in the hopes that they will rekindle my passion and spark a light of yours.
