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 hobbies. Amidst the craziness that is college exams, I realized something. In order to still be excited for literacy when college gets rough, I need to refocus on what about words make me happy. So here I am, rambling about picture books as a full grown adult.

.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 I think we should read to the youth in our 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.

So, here I am. Meandering through my favorite stories and sharing them with you all, in the hopes that they will force some sort of motivation in me and spark some sort of interest in you.


Also- I am currently looking for guest bloggers! Contact me for more info.
