Children’s Librarian & Author- Chelsea DiCicco

“I write for children to inspire imagination. It is my opinion, that imagination is one of the most underrated things we can impart to young minds. It can be used in all facets of life, no matter what age you are, as both a practical tool- and a necessary escape. Imagination encourages wonder… wonder leads to inventiveness… inventiveness leads to outside-of-the-box thinking… outside-of-the-box thinkers lead to creative problem solvers… and when life gets to be heavy and stresses pressure us down… imagination can lend a hand with that too. It can be a safe haven from the hardships of life… and a peaceful place of retreat for both mind and body. Imagination is priceless.”

Chelsea DiCicco

Chelsea is a tea drinker, book reviewer, fort builder, stuffed animal collector, jewelry maker, cinephile, night owl, midnight coffee brewer, wine enthusiast, and Hufflepuff. Her favorite past-time is being seven years old and living in Washington State. Her favorite expressions include (but are not limited to) “yippie-kayak-other-buckets,” – by Charles Boyle, from Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and “stay fresh cheese bags.”  When she’s not shelving or recommending picture books as a Children’s Librarian, she’s at home reading or writing her own. Chelsea is a fan of sunshine and blankets and loves being near the water. And in case you’re wondering… she really likes foxes and bats.
