About the book and the author

Sam Munoz

Samantha Muñoz is a mother, wife, engineer, bibliophile and avid coffee drinker. She is also a side-hustle blogger at where she writes children’s book reviews to guide parents as they search for the perfect books for their little ones. Once a seriously overwhelmed and stressed out parent, she now turns to literature for the answers to all of my parenting dilemmas.

Samantha wants parents to stop thinking you have to do it all by yourself! In the Intentional Bookshelf, she shares how her daughter’s carefully curated bookshelf has saved her sanity as a parent. Through actionable tips, thoughtful personal stories, and tongue in cheek humor, Sam teaches you:

  • The value of literature for parents and children
  • How to plan and build your child’s library
  • The types of books to choose from
  • How to organize your shelves
  • Unique activities to go outside the book and more!
