Welcome to CMbookworks

Welcome to CMbookworks, a website devoted to instilling the love of reading in children. As a reading instructor for the last twenty years, I can honestly say that teaching a struggling reader to crack the reading code is one of the most fulfilling jobs I’ve had in life. Watching the pride and sheer joy on the face of a reader, who has never felt successful in learning to read, suddenly GET IT, is an emotional event every time.

My goal is to provide you with children’s literature that allows your reader to find meaning in the story and to identify the lesson intended to be discovered. I am grateful that you have taken the time to read the website, and that hope you will share it, and check in periodically for updates and further thoughts .
