About Us


Welcome to Open a Book Open a Mind. Thanks for stopping by!

We are Mike and Maggie, college sweethearts and parents to three rowdy boys ages 1, 4, and 6. Our lives are full of love, laughs, and lots of books.

As an elementary school teacher, reading teacher, and current Literacy Ambassador for her school district, Maggie developed a passion for children’s literature which has rubbed off on the whole family.  We read a ton and started this blog in the hopes that we can make it easier to get great books in your kids’ hands.

We hope this blog inspires you to open a book with your little ones and open their minds to a world beyond their everyday experience.

We love to meet other book lovers so please don’t hesitate to contact us!

The fine print: All books reviewed are either part of our vast family collection or borrowed from a library. We only post books that we recommend since we are focused on getting great books in kids’ hands. Opinions are our own. We have included Amazon Affiliate links so that you can easily access additional information and reviews. We recommend you purchase through an independent book seller or Scholastic Reading Clubs so that your teacher earns points to buy books for the classroom.
