From the editor


More than 20 years as an editor and a mother have taught me that children are more likely to read when they love what they’re reading—when it’s fun, when it’s exciting, when it makes them feel smarter, more curious, and more confident. I have one mission: to keep kids turning the pages and learning more about themselves and the world around them.
