I have a masters degree in Humanities with an emphasis in Children’s Literature from Prescott College. I also hold a NM teaching certificate with a Library Media Endorsement. I am the school librarian at Mesilla Valley Christian School(MVCS) in Las Cruces, NM. I previously taught Children’s Literature courses at Dona Ana Community College. My posts are about books in our school library, that I may put in our school library, or those I have read in conjunction with courses I’ve taught.

  1. Dear Jane,

    I have enjoyed following your blog! I am a children’s book author and have two new picture books coming out this year: a Halloween book and a Christmas book. The publisher has assigned me to get a few short reviews from other children’s authors, reviewers, and librarians to print on the back cover. I am especially interested in having you review my picture book THE GIFTS OF THE ANIMALS, which is loosely based on an old Latin carol about gifts the stable animals brought to baby Jesus. I would also love for your to read IF YOU’RE SCARY AND YOU KNOW IT, a Halloween board book for preschool and early elementary. The illustrator is not quite finished with the Christmas book. However, the Halloween book interior is all finished. Please let me know if you would be willing to look at them. Thank you, Carole Gerber http://www.carolegerber.com
