My Story

My name is Jamie and I’m a self-professed book addict! Children’s books and literacy are my passion.  I joined PaperPie in early 2014 and absolutely love it! I’m married to Bill and we have one daughter, Amelia, who is almost 9.  Being able to provide books to children and witnessing the effect that books have on children’s lives has been amazing! Through PaperPie, I’ve found a new appreciation for children’s books and getting them into the hands of children everywhere. I love to help children find the right books that speak to them and also help parents with creating a lifelong love of reading in their children. On this site, you will find tips, tricks, recommendations, fun activities, special offers,  literacy guidance, plus new book releases from Usborne and Kane Miller! I’m so excited to start this site and blog for all of you!
