Welcome to Little Big Reads!
I am Allison and I am an Australian Librarian who is passionate about literacy and books for babies through to teens. I have a background in children’s services and as a library professional and I love nothing more than getting people excited about the written word.
Throughout my childhood and teen years I was always lost in a book and making new discoveries. I was often caught reading, hidden under the covers late at night. I believe everyone deserves to go to that place only a book can take you, a place of imagination, but also to learn from books like I did.
Little Big Reads has been evolving since I first started and while much of my blog is still focused on child and teen literacy, I also review books for adults, and talk about other bookish things like festivals, events, workshops I’ve attended and bookish related places I visit. My other passion is storytelling for both children and teens and I will be sharing ideas for both of these and other literacy based experiences.
I look forward to sharing with you and getting to know you all.
