Starting with Children's picture books, here are some of my favorite discoveries for 2018:
The Rabbit Listened by Cori Doerrfeld. This book teaches how to be supportive of a friend dealing with disappointment.
True . . . (Sort of) by Katherine Hannigan. This book teaches about learning to control ones impulses along with what it takes to be a good friend.
The House of Hades by Rick Riordan. I love Rick Riordan's work. I love that he helps other authors. I love that his books are inclusive of all people. This was my favorite of all his work that I've read so far.
I'll end here for today and do another post tomorrow with my young adult and adult favorites.
Read to a child today even if that child is you.
Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We can use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the books you donate.
