Hi, I’m Melissa Taylor, a mom of two teenage girls. I’m also a a freelance education blogger/writer, a children’s book expert, a former award-winning teacher with an M.A. in Education, a former literacy trainer, and a passionate advocate for literacy, representation in children’s literature, and high-quality education.
In addition to loving children’s books, I love teaching children writing using children’s books as examples. My Teach Writing Using Children’s Books writing curriculum for homeschool or small groups can help you incorporate high-quality children’s literature into your writing instruction.
A big part of my story is that my girls and I had HUGE health issues for the last decade — all different symptoms but with one root cause. Read our poisoned mold story here. I share this mostly to spread the word about this toxin that destroys health in about 20% of people. It’s not well known but it’s treatable. (Eventually.)
Imagination Soup is a place where parents, librarians, and teachers can find great children’s books as well as educational learning ideas, resources, and community. My goal is to make your life easier. Let me know how else I can help!
