Annette's Favorites

Annette’s love of reading began with reading A.A. Milne’s poems and all the Winnie-the-Pooh stories, works that still bring her joy. Sharing this passion led her to becoming a school librarian where she consumes childrens and YA literature and appreciates the extreme diversity and choice available to today’s young people.
