Featured Author: Helena Sorensen

Helena Sorensen (Aman) believes in the transformative power of words and stories, and in the power of the voices that speak them. Before she became a mom, she studied music, taught English, and dabbled in poetry and songwriting. These days, when she's not playing "royal ball" or "royal feast" with her daughter or doing science experiments with her son, she's hiking with friends at Radnor Lake or talking books with her husband. Of course, she might be at her kitchen table writing fantasy novels.

Reshelving Alexandria has been a tremendous blessing to our family, saving us both time and money. Before Reshelving Alexandria, finding living literature for our children was a painstaking and time-consuming process; scouring book lists, hunting through blog posts and podcast notes, researching titles and subjects and authors and illustrators, speculating as to reading level and suitability for our family.

Because Reshelving Alexandria has already done this for me, bringing together the best of the best of living literature in a searchable and easily navigable database, it allows me to both focus and stretch our book budget by narrowing down my search to precisely those books that are the best fit for our family and then helping me to easily take advantage of free online books and used book searches to grow our family library. And all the time I am saving? What a joy to re-invest that in reading these books with my children!"
