About the Contributors

Emma Filbrun I am Esther’s Mother, and have been a bookworm since my mother taught me to read when I was three years old (I think she regretted that!). I was homeschooled all the way through, and started a bookstore when I was 16, which I ran for 17 years. I have been homeschooling my own children now for many years, since Esther was old enough for kindergarten – and of course, I read to her and her brothers even before that! I’m excited about this website; it fulfills a dream of mine from many years ago. After reading a few books recommending books to read to your children, I was frustrated that so many of my favorite books weren’t included, and so many books I didn’t like, were! I thought about writing my own list of books I recommended, but the busyness of homeschooling our growing family and farming got in the way. I am looking forward to seeing what happens with this website, and helping other mothers find books for their children.
