Samantha Munoz is a wife and mother. She blogs about how she parents her daughter with children’s literature. She doesn’t just randomly throw books on her shelves or give her a stack of books Sam hasn’t carefully read herself. No, she is creating an intentional bookshelf™ for her. In fact, she wrote an entire book about it so that you can parent intentionally through your book choices as well.
5 FACTS ABOUT SAM:
- I absolutely love coffee. I actually have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to it.
- I am a software developer / consultant engineer at an amazing company with a very dynamic, wonderful team.
- My hubby is in the military which makes me a military spouse. We move around a lot and I enjoy every minute of it.
- I never thought I wanted more than one child but now I’m reconsidering because Addison brings my life so much joy.
- Oh, and I’m sarcastic. So get used to it. If you’re a love of sarcasm and humor, welcome!

As one happy reader stated, “No matter what you’re dealing with in parenthood there is a book out there that covers that situation. If you buy your children’s book ‘intentionally’ like Sam explains then you will have books for each season of life.”
Emily P says, “Sam offers a practical and simplified approach to parenting through a curated library of books for your little one. By being selective about which books you incorporate into your child’s library you can convey the importance of certain values, morals, stories, and educational information. Sam tells you step by step how you can start your own intentional library, from budget ideas and how to display and organize your collection to examples of books that suit every reading stage, theme, and book type. She doesn’t stop there though! Sam also provides ideas for exploring concepts and books outside of the pages that you and your child read. At the end of the book, Sam provides a great checklist and resources for celebrating your library milestones and ideas on how to make your collection personal to you and your family. What a great gift for expecting or new parents! I can’t wait to give a copy of this to friends & family as part of their baby gifts!”
The choice is yours; either struggle through parenting with no backup or learn to craft a library of resources that is a reflection of your child and your family. (Hint, if the second option sounds amazing the Intentional Bookshelf is for you!)
