Hello and welcome to our new book review, book obsessed, book everything blog, Wild for Books!

We are Lily, Jasper, Greg, & Sara Ohlin, and we love books! We love reading them, talking about them, shopping for them, discovering them at the library, and we absolutely love sharing them.

Wild for Books is our new blog where we talk about books we adore. Old books & new books, the words, the illustrations, the emotions, anything & everything we love about them! And while, for now, we mostly talk about books for kids between the ages of 7-13, we also know the magic of books is that even adults can enjoy children’s literature, and that often times, books are best when shared.

On our Get Inspired page, we link to all kinds of fun, inspirational, book-related sites for kids and parents, including author sites we love, amazing illustrators, helpful information, and general book-oriented mojo. Hopefully this page will continue to expand, because the world is full of fabulous book mojo!

We are constantly growing and changing, so if you have something awesome to share with us, let us know!

Poke around the site to learn About Us, Get Inspired, check out some of Lily’s and Jasper’s art, and let us know what you think!

Our first review is COMING TOMORROW! 

Is your nose stuck in a book? Do you love to read? Do you love to be read to? Do you enjoy talking about your favorite books with others? Then come join us for what we hope are some fabulous book adventures!!

    What an amazing adventure – love that your blog is a family affair. I’m just sorry I don’t meet the demographic and that my five grandsons are all teenagers. Best of luck! Phyllis

    Hi Sara, Greg, Jasper and Lily, I am looking forward to your blog. As a request for a rainy day, could Jasper and Lily dedicate a blog to their favorite children’s books to be in any library of a 3-6 year old. I would love their advice insight, and favorite memories of books. Thank you!
