Children's Literature Reviewer Heather Christensen has been reviewing books with Children's Literature since 2007. Heather is the district and high school librarian for Portales Municipal Schools. She has taught in public schools
for over seven years and is a past chair of New Mexico’s Advocacy for School Libraries. Heather has also served on several award committees, including The Land of Enchantment Book Award, VOYA’s Nonfiction Honor List, and YALSA’s
Best Fiction for Young Adults.
Heather likes to read almost everything except romances and horror and especially loves books with a good twist or surprise ending. If stranded on a deserted tropical island, Heather would make sure she had brought plenty of books
to keep her occupied. Books such as Harry Potter, Matilda, The Snowy Day, Emma by Jane Austen, Peterson’s Field Guides (edible plants & probably birds), Holy Bible & The Book of Mormon.
When not at school, reading, or reviewing books, Heather likes to bake, knit, sew, hike, travel, be surrounded by music (choir, voice, & piano), and spend time with family.
