My name is Angela and I started The Children’s Nook after the birth of my first child.  I have a Master’s degree in school counseling k-12, but currently am enjoying being a stay at home mom. I also have a background in childcare. I created this blog to combine two great passions of mine. My love of children and books. Throughout my experiences in childcare, schools, and home, I have gained first hand knowledge as to what books truly capture children’s love and attention. When I became pregnant with my son, it became my personal goal to build him a great children’s library. I wanted to start this blog to share my book knowledge and hopefully discover great children’s authors as well as other great family friendly products. While being a stay at home mom I have also become a deal seeker and like to share fun new products I discover as well as deals and freebies.  The Children’s Nook has turned into a guide to great children’s products, deals, freebies, and a must have book of the month. Enjoy!

    Hi I just found your blog recently and I love it! I love your goal of building your son a great children’s library, what a wonderful gift, I think beside spending quality time with our children, giving the gift of books is the best thing we can do for them. Looking forward to following your blog 🙂

    Hi Angela! Loving your blog! Just want to let you know I doubled up on entries to Happy Baby and Bedtime for Mommy. I didn’t see your last post on your old site that you would be keeping track of comments from both sites! So, I reentered (and might have added some on your new site!). Please delete as necessary! Sorry!

    Hi! Love your blog – I’m also a stay at home mom – after being a school counselor, as well. 🙂 Enjoy your book reviews – also love reading with my 1.5 year old son!

  5. You have just a wonderful site. I look forward to receiving blogs. As the author and creator of PurpleUmpkin and the Murples we spread the word of the importance of reading with children. My book is a read to until the age of 5. It is designed to create interaction with children, parents and adults. Making memories that will last a life time.
    “Reading is the gateway to your dreams. Everything you do or dream of doing in life will come through reading.” – Michael John McCann

    I have started a new program. “Read With A Child, And Help Feed A Child.” Using proceeds from the sale of PurpleUmpkin and the Murples.we raise money for food to give the children here . We also give books through donations to children that need them. Best wishes always.
