Mia Wenjen (Pragmatic Mom)
Boston, MA, USA
Mom of three, Mia Wenjen is better known in the kidlit blogging world as Pragmatic Mom. She blogs on “picture books through YA with a special focus on Newbery/Caldecott/Printz quality books, Asian & people of color characters/authors, special needs, graphic novels and math/science.”
“I started reading children’s lit again…when I realized I was giving my oldest Newbery Award Winning books that were her reading level, but were inappropriate because of content. As my middle child started reading independently, she was so picky that I had to wrack my brain to get her books she likes. And my youngest, who is just starting to read, has gone on a reading strike lately. So, there you have it. It’s always a challenge to find “just-right” books and that has become my life.”
