About Me

A remarkable, book-loving toddler calls me “ma-ma.”  

Hi, I'm Stephanie.

I am a writer, marketer, & mom from New York passionate about The Magical World of Children's Literature. Striving to be the best mother I can be fulfills me in a way that I never knew possible. Yet, my love of children’s books came even before my son did. I have long admired how simply children’s books can convey moralsinspiring messages, & valuable lessons to young minds that soak them all up like sponges.

The Stories We Read is a place where I hope you will find that perfect book to share with a child in your life. I will highlight favorite books from our bookshelf, feature talented authors and illustrators, and blog about bookish things, life things, motherhood things, and more. Stay connected with us because this site will grow along with our bookshelf.  

Whether you're here to find something new for your child's collection, find the perfect book to give as a gift, or start your baby's first library, I hope you find a story that your child will adore for years to come! Be sure to contact me to let me know your family favorites or your childhood favorites.

I'd love to hear from you! xx
