I first thought about starting a blog in about 2006, but I talked myself out of it. I was busy with my firstborn’s arrival that year – definitely too preoccupied with reading Goodnight Moon to my pregnant belly to stop and write about it.

Eight crazy years and three beautiful kids later, I’m bursting at the seams with creative ideas that I can’t wait to share.

On Wednesday, I’ll have a story about an unusual connection with a classic book.  Then, on Friday, you’ll get to see a fun and practical solution to an everyday problem with small children – if you’re on Pinterest, get ready to pin it.

Next week, I’ll treat you to a book review with activities for a wonderful picture book you may have missed. Then, get ready to check out a 3-part series related to kids learning to read.

It’s going to take a while to get the word out about this website. If you like what you read, please share it with all your friends and acquaintances who have small (or even medium-sized) children.

Most importantly, welcome to Books and Giggles!


  1. What a sweet way to start your blog! Glad to have found you through your comment on my page the other day. Best of luck with all of it. 🙂
