Chapter Books To Read With Your Children

Picture books will always have my heart and I treasure reading them to Lil’ CB and to my students.

Plus, chapter books are great for building children’s comprehension as they hold on to the story from day […]

A Song For You

During both of the waits for our children (this one is almost over — whohoo!!), without any thought or planning, there has been a song that really hit home and brought on a surge of emotion without warning.
