About

My name is Amy Broadmoore. I am a mother, library science graduate student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Chapaign, aspiring children’s librarian, former attorney, Cybils judge and founder/instigator of International Book Giving Day. (International Book Giving Day – February 14th – Give a book to a child!) I have three children ages nine, seven, and five. I spend my time studying, hangin’ with kids, running, and searching for great picture books.

At Delightful Children’s Books, you can search for book recommendations by child’s age (0-8+) or by subject. Alternatively, here are…
