For my Spring 2020 course, Literature for Children and Young Adults at Texas Woman’s University with Dr. Sylvia Vardell, I conducted reviews of books for children and adolescents. I do plan on reviewing other types of books in the future. I hope to develop my skills in promoting different literatures to a diverse population. Please follow along through the tag Book Reviews.
