Hi Literacy Lovers,

I am Sarah, Literacy Lady PDX!  

I am overjoyed to have the opportunity to connect with numerous communities in the Portland Metro area. Sharing the gift of literacy has been a passion of mine for as long as I can recall!


As a child, I was captivated by the world of books (and that fascination still holds today). Some of my cherished reads were the Ramona Quimby books, Anne of Green Gables, The Babysitters Club, and the back of the cereal box at breakfast. I always harbored a dream of working with children in a meaningful way that involved the magic of reading.  


One of the most rewarding aspects of my storytimes and Bookworm Buddies Experiences is the opportunity to unite people and help children and their caregivers forge new connections. Witnessing each child's growth and development fills my heart with joy every time we meet. I am dedicated to collaborating with local businesses and ensuring that as many books as possible reach children and families. ​


I have a B.S. in Liberal Studies from Portland State University, with an emphasis on Child and Family Studies and Conflict Resolution. In my over twenty years of experience as a nanny in Portland and NYC, I have always loved working with the whole family.


​If you spot me at an event, please say hello! I'll likely have a sticker and a high-five ready to share. I'm always excited to meet new families and share the joy of literacy with them!​


Keep Reading,


Literacy Lady PDX

Why Bookworm Buddies

Bookworm Buddies was founded on the belief that children thrive best in an environment free from judgment or rigid expectations. The Bookworm Buddies is dedicated to fostering a space where children can embrace their individuality and flourish.


We start at each gathering with a welcoming circle, welcoming our friends with a song. Our Bookworm Buddies Experience encompasses enriching storytime sessions, engaging musical activities, and playful rhythm exploration. And let's not overlook the joy of bubbles! Following these interactive sessions, we delve into themed crafts and activities, ensuring every moment is filled with excitement and learning.


Caregivers can anticipate spending 45 minutes cultivating connections and community with the children while forging bonds with fellow caregivers. It's a win-win situation!


Bookworm Buddies will move to a 10-month model in the fall of 2024, including occasional field trips to enrich the learning experience. Previous excursions have included visits to the Pumpkin Patch, PDX Dinorama, a local Portland Fire Station, berry picking at a local farm, community gatherings at Stay Little, and refreshing nature walks in the park.


The primary objective of our Little Bookworm class is to instill a lifelong love for reading while fostering a sense of unity among children and caregivers within our community.


As the seasons change, so do our class themes, ensuring that there's always something fresh and exciting to explore and learn together!
