This is a sponsored post. Several years ago, I began a life changing quest to find more ways to incorporate reading into our daily lives. Those early days were filled with rambunctious toddlers and a little baby. It was a strange thing to chase after with...

My love for Book Character Halloween costumes can be directly linked to my own childhood. Yes, this is a classic case of "reliving my childhood through my children". See, when I was a kid, we didn't celebrate Halloween. In fact, the first time I ever...
