Hey there! My name is Clarissa. I am Book Nerd Mommy and I believe that life is meant to be celebrated. What better what to celebrate life than with those you love and those who love what you love! I love going on adventures through stories, motherhood, and good food. Do you love those too? Great, let’s be friends!
As a child my mother instilled a love of reading deep in my core. I have fond memories of reading
“The Lion Witch and the Wardrobe”, “Anne of Green Gables”, and many more books with her. For my birthdays and Christmas I would receive books. I loved it. I still love it. I love it so much I went to college and became a certified teacher with the motivation to share my love of learning and reading with others.
When my little boy came along I ended my teaching as a public school teacher and entered the world of teaching as a mother. One of my favorite things to do with my little boy is read books and I love to see how that same love is growing with him. Now I have a baby girl as well and my lap happily accommodates two at story time.
Here we love to celebrate books through “Beyond the Book” crafts, activities, and recipes. And what goes better with a celebration than a cupcake or two? Cupcakes happen to be a love of mine as well so every once and a while I may throw a cupcake recipe in the mix. Your tastebuds will thank me!
I am also a firm believer that play, along with reading, is essential to happiness and development in childhood. Therefore I also always have an eye out for great toys, music, and books that will help me and my kiddos celebrate life more together. Being a former teacher I am especially drawn to great resources that combine strong educational elements along with outright fun. What better combination is there?!
I created this blog simply out of the desire, no need, to share what makes me so happy. In so doing I hope that you discover some delectable dishes with me and add some mutual fictional friends to your world. Above all, I hope you leave just a little happy. Celebrate life with me!
