Enjoy Quiet Time with Storytime
It’s always exciting to look forward to something new! Each month, Tiny Readers Publishing highlights a different series of picture books. The Series of the Month allows you to take a closer look at the selected series to determine if it meets your child’s reading preferences and needs. With series written in a variety of genres, you’ll never know what you’ll see next in Series of the Month!
Our March series is the Giulia’s Discoveries series. Giulia is a bright and happy four-year-old girl who is eager to learn all she can. Her enthusiasm and wonder is contagious, and she spreads smiles to everyone around her. If your child is hesitant to try new things, the Giulia’s Discoveries series can show them that new things can be fun!
A former elementary school teacher, Carolyn Mikelson has always loved children’s literature. She enjoyed the whimsy of creating spontaneous stories for her kindergarten and first grade students, and later treated her own four children to a new oral bedtime story every night. Carolyn was thrilled to move into the world of publishing after her children became a bit older, and began working as a children’s literature editor at TRP in 2014. Carolyn makes her home in the far west Chicago suburbs, where she enjoys spending time outdoors, at the theatre, and at other fine arts and cultural events. During her free time, she teaches reading, writing, and speaking English to immigrant women in her area. Carolyn is member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
