Some I will have read, others I will have just peeked at on line. I think books are such a great way to connect and teach to allow conversation. You and your child(ren) will learn of the challenges, you will gain insight and it will aid in the ultimate goal we strive for- all of our kids connecting and realizing there is a common bond to find and hold.
For June we are sharing these 4. We will have this post monthly. Please feel free to send over any suggestions.
