Diversifying Your Child’s Library
Reading to your child develops language skills, social-emotional development, and is an excellent bonding opportunity for you and your child. You may feel like you’re stuck in a rut, reading your child the same type of book every night. A great organization for resources is We Need Diverse Books, where their vision is for all children to see themselves in the books they read. Here are some great books to add to your library:
