About Me: Alana Buttars

I'm a stay at home mom and part time teacher.

I have a B.S. in Elementary Education and a huge passion for dramatic read alouds, teaching at home, and making the world a better place.

Colorful Books


  • Any adult with a child in their life has the responsibility and ability to teach about how to contribute to goodness in the world.

  • You don't need any fancy curricula to teach goodness. Some of the best books are little picture books.

  • Teaching about moral values should be easy, natural, quick, and interesting for both adults and children.

  • You do not have to be a parent with a biological child to have many opportunities to share moral values with loved ones in your life.

  • Children's books benefit all age groups, including adults.

  • Intimate time reading together as family and/or friends is important.
