Chelsea DiCicco… lover of literature, wearer of many hats… both literal and metaphorical.

Dear Reader,

Thank you for visiting my page!

Here’s a little bit about me:

I love books!
Especially picture books.

I work as a Children’s Librarian by day and a Children’s Book Writer by night.

When I’m not reading picture books,
I’m shelving them,
displaying them,
recommending them,
purchasing them,
or writing them.

Some of my other interests include (but are not limited to):
My punderful husband, Jake, any and all animals (especially my mini-farm collection of two dogs, two cats, (+ one roommate cat, who technically isn’t mine, but I love him like he is), and three fish, coffee and cozy blankets, hammocks and bubble baths, you know the drill.

Mission statement:

“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.”
