The idea for StoryBook Treasures came to Denise over many years of working directly with young children. During her 30+ years of teaching children of all ages her deep passion and love of educating our youth drove her to believe in the dream that one day teachers would implement a simple program she developed. Teachers would be teaching with the books they love to teach with and children would be reading books that are remembered for a lifetime. Denise knew her creative approach would inspire teachers to help children learn to love books and love reading. StoryBook Treasures Inc. was born out of these dreams.
It didn't take long for Denise to realize she would have to supplement her teaching salary to find the funds to start a business. She answered a part time job opportunity on Craig's List as a private limo driver, where she met and drove for a man named Tom Klarner. Tom, an established and successful entrepreneur offered guidance and encouraged her to pursue her dreams. She used what she calls her “limo money” to form the nonprofit, StoryBook Treasures Inc.
