For Readers/Parents

Welcome to The Story Sanctuary! I hope that browsing reviews here will help you find new books to read and share with others. Here are some resource pages that will help you find your way around the blog site and the world of children’s literature.


The Story Sanctuary isn’t your average book review blog. One of the biggest differences you’ll notice is that my reviews contain content information to help you decide if a book is right for you or your family. Check out my mission statement for more on why.
