My name is Katie and I am a mother, wife, and book lover from the Pacific Northwest. In my early 20s, I worked as a bookseller at Borders, where (among other things) I managed the store’s children’s department. Few things have brought me more joy than being able to help children and families find the perfect book. When Borders closed its doors, it led me to create this blog as a way to share my love of children’s literature with people all over the world. Founded in 2012, Youth Literature Reviews features book reviews and carefully curated book lists for children, babies, and teens.
