About Librarymom.com

My name is Rosemary D’Urso and I am a school librarian turned stay-at-home mom who loves sharing the joy of reading. It can be overwhelming to keep up with all the books being published each month, so I created this site hoping to guide parents and teachers to some of the most outstanding books in children’s literature.

We have tried to make it as easy as possible for you to discover new books by creating categories based on age, format, well-known authors, and various themes. You might particularly enjoy our best book lists and our kid picks section, which showcases new and old favorites that my children ask for repeatedly over the month.

We love posting book lists and individual books here on the site, but if you are looking for more book love, follow us on Instagram where I usually post five days a week.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope our suggestions help you discover your child’s next favorite book!


My Book Journey

My love of books began in a tree reading Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson. I vividly remember climbing up to my sanctuary and becoming completely immersed in Paterson’s magical world of Terabithia. That book ignited my love affair with stories that is still going strong.

 Reading has always played an important part of my life, but has recently become a central role now that I am a school librarian and a mother. I love introducing the amazing world of books to children and helping to match the right book with the right child. There is so much joy in snuggling up with your own child and hearing them giggle at a silly story or watch as they point out interesting illustrations.

Reading still brings me as much joy today as it did sitting in that tree all those years ago. I am hoping that the book suggestions on my blog will help children fall in love with reading and inspire them to become life-long readers too.

Happy Reading!
