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 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.
Sometimes at Christmas, you want to give something a little nicer. These gift ideas also span an age range from toddler to teen, and come with our recommendation and delight.
This year, I went digging in my own Amazon history for suggestions to share with you of great gifts for kids, for twenty dollars or less.
I imagine that, like me, you want an answer: something to eat or do or break or understand that will make the difference, make this bearable.
