Organization: The Book Vine for Children
Amy E. Vandament is president of The Book Vine for Children. A bookseller for over 25 years and a former Barnes & Noble store manager, she specializes in selecting books for early childhood. As a lover of children’s picture books with a BS in Art she maintains a passion for the medium: the marriage of well-written text and great art. Her goal is to expose teachers to quality children’s literature so they can pass the magic on to the children in their programs.
Today, Amy and Isabel Baker conduct Literacy trainings for Early Childhood programs around the country.
Amy is an active member of NAEYC and the American Booksellers Association.
