2016 MLBB Summer Reading Program


My goal is to keep our children reading throughout the summer so they don't lose any of their reading achievement over summer break. The MLBB Summer Reading Program is for children ages 0-18 who complete the necessary reading requirements for their age/grade level. Once they complete their reading log, they can redeem prizes from various local businesses!

Children up to 2nd grade must read 15 books and children entering 3rd-12th grade must read 6 chapter books. If your child does not yet know how to read (preschool age), please read the required amount of books to them. All books should be appropriate for your child's reading level.

Once your child has read the books required of their age/grade, they may bring their completed log to each of the businesses listed on the form to redeem their prize. They may redeem each prize ONCE. Please make sure the prize you're redeeming is age appropriate for your child as some of the venues have age limits/requirements. All prizes must be redeemed by 9/5 unless otherwise noted.

Please join me in sending a huge THANK YOU to our wonderful community partners! Without them, this program wouldn't be possible! Now it's time to print the reading log and start reading!! I hope your child's imagination soars! Have a great summer!!

Who is the lady behind MLBB?

Hello!  My name is Jen and I am the creator of Mommy's Lil' Black Book!  I am a wife and  mother of two amazing little boys who keep me extremely busy!  I received my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from St. Joe's University and a Master's Degree in Education from La Salle University.  Before I began this site, I spent the last 14 years working with individuals with special needs; with the latter stages of my career being very near and dear to my heart as I worked as a Developmental Specialist for babies ages 0-3 in the Early Intervention Program. 

After having my second son, I tried my best to work my schedule around my husband's so I didn't have to put my newborn baby in daycare but it just didn't seem to be working out well for us so I made the decision to become a stay-at-home mom.   Due to working in the social service field for so long and gaining extensive knowledge of the resources in the area, I decided to develop a website so that I could share the information with others who could benefit.   Fast forward 6 weeks to the creation of the site and voila!  We have Mommy's Lil' Black Book!! 

I wanted a way to be able to connect with other families and reap the benefits of interaction so I created a facebook page to operate in conjunction with my site. Best. Idea. EVER!!  The networking opportunities that have presented themselves to me through facebook have been amazing!   I have met some truly wonderful people and am so thankful that they have chosen to follow MLBB and share activities, events and experiences with me and my other followers in the same way that I enjoy sharing with them!  In fact, I even host some family friendly events from time to time and this has become a wonderful way for me to meet many of the MLBB followers!  Take a look at some of the fun we've had!













Now that you've heard about my story, come and join all the fun on facebook!!  It is THE place to interact with MLBB and ask the opinions of other parents in the area!  Can't wait to "meet" you

What do local businesses have to say about advertising with MLBB? 

"I have advertised with Jen for years now. Not only does she do a great job, she is also one of the nicest people you will ever meet. She always has everyone's best interest in mind. Before I started advertising with her, my Facebook page, Cliffords Creations, had about 100 likes. I am currently around 1200! So if you're thinking of doing it for your small business, do it. It's the best money you'll spend and I promise not only will your business improve, you will also meet a lot of great people, especially Jen herself!"

                           ~ Curt Clifford, Owner/Operator - Cliffords Creations

"The continued success of my small business would not be where it is today if it were not for the outstanding advertising I receive through MLBB.  The constantly growing fan base on this site is nothing short of amazing!  I truly believe there are certain people that are meant to do certain things in life and I know that Jen from MLBB was certainly meant to do just this."

                 ~ Tiffany Barger, Owner/Operator - My Little Cupcake Parties

"MLBB has been incredibly beneficial to the growth and success of my small business.  My social media exposure skyrockets each time MLBB refers her clients and followers to my sites, and because of that I have new clients heading my way on a regular basis." 

                                         ~ Jessica Gleason, Infant Sleep Consultant

"I just wanted to take a minute to say, 'Thank you SO much to Mommy's Lil' Black Book!'  When I started as a Disney Travel Planner, I KNEW I had the know-how to help people have a MAGICAL Disney vacation but how could I get my name out there to people besides my friends and family?  Luckily Jen started Mommy's Lil' Black Book around the same time as I began this career and asked me if I would like to advertise.  In LESS than a year I am a top seller in my company and my facebook fan base is just 50 fans shy of 1,000!!  I really do not believe I would be as successful without the help of MLBB.  Becoming one of her advertisers was the best career decision I could have ever made!!  Thank you, Mommy's Lil' Black Book.  I know you work so hard to help my business grow and help parents in our area."

"I own and operate Just Kidding Play Center and have found that most of my business comes from MLBB and the vendor events Jen hosts at Neshaminy Mall. I make back the table payment with one booked party so it's fun, easy and worth the money. I can't thank MLBB enough for all the support and help advertising my small business."

"Nicole's Tax Service LLC just wanted to stop by and tell you how wonderful we did with advertising with you this year. With only advertising on your site for 2 months we grew from 100 clients to 163 clients. We are so excited for our growth and to continue working with you!!!"
