All About Monica at TheReadathon!
Hi! I’m Monica at TheReadathon and I absolutely love to read! If I have any extra time (which is not very often with four children), you will find me with a book in my hand. Here at TheReadathon I love to read, but I don’t love to read books filled with profanity or graphic “intimacy” scenes, if you know what I mean; I also do not want my children reading books with that kind of content in them. For a long time I tried to find a site that would give content ratings on books, like they have for movies; I couldn’t find one, so I decided to make one. In my book reviews I give each book a content rating (like a movie rating) and an age recommendation. I hope it helps parents and their kids to find books that are content and age appropriate.
Also, I have an elementary education degree and taught first grade for a couple of years before I decided to stay home with my first baby. Since then I have had three more children, and all four of them LOVE to read. I love helping children become better readers, and helping them become life-long readers. Check out my “Raising a Reader” section for tips, and if you need help with a struggling or disinterested reader, please send me an email, I’d love to help in any way I can. I now teach sixth grade (math and science–a bit different for me) and I love it!
If you need help with a struggling reader, have questions or comments, or just want to say hi, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
