Our Summer Reads!

Posted on General, Parenting July 26, 2017 by Mary George

Sand between our toes, the adirondack chair on the deck, or the hammock in the yard – the dreamy spots to kick back and read. Ahh, these blissful days of summer. While we still have a few left we thought that we would share with you a few of the books on our list this summer. They are not your mindless reads but as we approach the school year, they may put you ahead of the game in understanding your child’s world and help he or she navigate it. 
We would love to hear from you too! So if you have any books similar to ours in nature, please post them to our Facebook page and share! It truly takes and village and we are all in this together!
