  • Deep knowledge of curriculum and books to complement and enrich classroom units and themes.
  • Ability to productively work with educators and administrators on book selection and procurement for schools.
  • Recommends books for Primary and Preschool for International Baccalaureate (IB PYP), Montessori Programs, and other educational programs, institutes and educators.
  • Many multicultural, diverse books focusing on nature, folk tales and universal messages.
  • Unique selection of children’s books all personally chosen, including Spanish and Spanish/English bilingual books.
