NICOLE (SHE/HER)

The books I read as a young child and teen helped shape me into the woman I am today and gave me an appreciation for all different genres. If you need any assistance with classics or are looking for something new and specific I can definitely help you find something great. When I’m not enjoying the nostalgia and happiness that children’s literature brings you can catch me reading fantasy, sci-fi, manga, and anything that will send me on an emotional rollercoaster.

Not only are the illustrations uniquely beautiful but the story gives the reader open opportunities to discuss space, the future and the past. The greatest message of the book - what brings us together matters more than what sets us apart. A fantastic book to have in your library and can be enjoyed by younger and older children.

If she stays carefully out of sight, she can watch over her people in the apartment building above. Lately though, her people seem to be missing…something. Sylvie wants to help, but she’s always stayed out of view. After all, not everyone appreciates a spider who calls attention to herself. We all can relate to having to muster up the courage and put ourselves out there, despite our anxieties, in order to help our friends and improve our own self-esteem.
