ImaginationSoup Blog Review is a great blog primarily focusing on children’s books and reading. Melissa Taylor is a mother of two, writer, blogger and author of Book Love: Help Your Child Grow from Reluctant to Enthusiastic Reader.

She has an M.A. in Education and freelance writes for Parenting Magazine. She obviously has all the right credentials for a blog about reading and children. I like all the great book lists she has created for all types of readers. She also includes ebooks and best apps in her lists which in today’s world is very helpful. She holds regular giveaways on her blog and is available via facebook, twitter and pinterest. 


Summer Langille, M.A, Early Childhood Education Specializing 0-8 Years

Summer has been working with children for almost 15 years. The oldest of four she’s always seen herself as a caregiver. She started off caring for children as a nanny for many years. She received her undergraduate degree in Liberal Studies from San Francisco State University and has a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education specializing in birth to age eight from Long Beach State. She’s worked with infants all the way up to elementary aged children in center-based care, private school care, home-based care, back-up care and afterschool care. She was a lead teacher for an infant program and more recently a two year old/preschool program. She even had a brief stint as a brownie girl scout troop leader. She’s passionate about quality care for children and thinks the environment plays a large role in how a child learns effectively. She loves art, blocks, music, fairy gardens and picture books and wants all caregivers of children to know how important their job is to the children they care for. Summer is currently home with her baby, navigating this new role as Mama. She blogs about her family at
