I’m Candace- lover of books, mama to two, and creator of this online space. I am a former teacher (both elementary and high school English) and one thing I know from my teaching career is that I love to create curriculum and lesson plans. I know, weird.

In the space of a few years, I changed careers, married my husband and moved to Montana. Then I had two babies in 16 months.

I quickly realized that I didn’t want to work anymore.  My husband and I decided that I would focus my attention on being at home with our babies, Audra and Wade. Since then, we have had many adventures and read hundreds (thousands?) of books.

I started preschool with my daughter last fall and fell in love with the routine and learning opportunities I could create with her and her brother.


In the midst of starting preschool, I learned about Usborne Books & More from a dear friend.  The fun, intentional, and quality books published by Usborne appealed to me, and I took a big step to become an Usborne Consultant (sales is never something I’ve excelled at!). You will see them featured throughout the website. If you have more questions about them, please reach out to me

The primary reason I created this blog is to bring together the things I love- teaching my kids and reading excellent books.

My goal is to be a resource for other moms who have full lives and not a lot of time to plan out activities for their preschooler.  

 I’m so glad you are here. Please take a look around, and contact me if you have any questions.
