Featured Author: Jean Lee Latham


As with many successful authors, the hallmark of Jeanís growing up was the time she spent in unstructured, highly imaginative, outdoor play. Jean remembered her early childhood fondly, "For years I lived just across from a lovely bit of unpruned forest. We had swings, trapezes, log houses, and tree houses. The only things I did indoors, sometimes, were to read, write poetry, and tell stories to my younger brothers and their pals. So Iím doing what comes naturally when I write for children."
Full descriptions of Jean Lee Latham's books are publicly available for the month of September.

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!"
