My name is Maddy! I am a Seattle native, popcorn lover, and I have a passion for developmental psychology. I graduated from Brigham Young University with my bachelor’s degree in human development, where I studied and researched the way in which all the influences in people’s lives shape them cognitively, socially, emotionally, and physically.
During my last semester, I also had a baby! As my husband and I were preparing for new parenthood, we knew reading high quality books with our daughter would be a hugely important influence in her development, but we were overwhelmed by how many choices of books there were. That’s why I decided to create a place where parents could come to find which picture books will be most beneficial for their child and align with their personal parenting goals.
