One of my favorite memories with these books is reading two pages of “I Want My Hat Back” over and over to my niece, while she giggled out loud.
I’m writing a manuscript for Herald Press. If you did not know about this and feel you should, I am nothing but sympathy. I didn’t know about it either.
I love these books for their powerful imagery and empathy, building a bridge between those-who-have-firsthand-experience and those-who-need-a-window-in.
There are intense times of motherhood when you are too tired even to think. But if reading rejuvenates you, carve out a section of life for it when you can.
“I like the idea of reading challenges, but the ones that I’ve seen just don’t quite fit for me. I don’t have a lot of time to read.” – Cristina Loewen
Two nonfiction + three novels = five captivating reads. At least for me. I can never guarantee you’ll like them, but they’re worth a shot.
