We’re Sweet on Books: introducing the two Melissas

The Reading Kingdom team is proud to introduce you to the two Melissas! These moms are the creators of Sweet on Books, the stellar children’s book review site. We love their reviews and are thrilled to have them join us as weekly contributors to the Great Books for Kids feature on our blog.

The two Melissas live in a small town outside of New York City and have five children between their two families. Melissa Young was a teacher of grades K-5 and specialized in literacy. She has an Elementary Education Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont, CA. Melissa Gaynor has worked in advertising and marketing and has an MBA from Columbia University. Their children and a shared passion for children’s books brought them together as friends and business partners.  Voracious readers with dreams of opening a children’s book store, they parlayed their passions into creating Sweet on Books and establishing themselves as two of the leading children’s book reviewers on the web.

Please welcome Melissa Gaynor and Melissa Young to the Reading Kingdom team!
