About Us


One of the greatest joys I get comes from reading to my children. But not just reading any story, certain stories.

Notable stories.

Stories that encourage, enlighten, inspire, influence and build awareness.

Stories that get us talking as a family.

We want to share these stories with you and hope you will share your stories with us.

My name is Christy and I have been enjoying every minute of digging for great stories and reading to my kids for 11 years. My oldest is 11, and now our fifth- is 6 six weeks.
In this conquest for great stories, Joeli, my sister has been right there with me. Although she’s in Oklahoma and I’m in Florida, together we have read thousands of children’s stories– always on the lookout for the next great one. Our excitement over finding a fantastic story never lessens.

Hi, my name is Joeli. I live in Oklahoma with my husband and 3 boys. I’m here along side my sister with our blog Role Model Reader. We have an ongoing list of children’s books that promote positivity by celebrating excellent choices and remarkable attitudes that we hope you can use.

We are blogging publicly as we want to connect with other moms, dads, teachers, grandparents or friends who would like to help us along our way by submitting book recommends that can be added to our list. We’ll be writing about all the good things that come from reading a good book. Self awareness, responsibility and ethics and social awareness to name a few. As we blog successfully we hope to grow our book lists with your help and over time have a large library of books to choose from.
