About Children’s Lit Love


Hi, my name is Mary Costello. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in Child Development and a Master of Education degree in Elementary Education, I spent 10 years in the classroom in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades. I then had our first daughter and decided to stay home and focus on raising our children.

I am frequently asked about books my girls and I love, as well as questions about literacy development and early education, and I realized I had a passion for sharing my ideas in these areas with people who want to listen. Children’s Lit Love provides me an easy way to collect my favorite books and tips to share easily.

Please take some time to poke around my site. I hope you enjoy your time here and find some helpful information! Thanks for visiting.
