Children’s Books Every Adult Should Read

It’s no secret that I love children’s books. I love picture books, children’s chapter books, and young adult fiction (yes, I’m totally one of those embarrassing Harry Potter and Hunger Games fans!). I often prefer reading books geared for younger audiences because they are quicker-paced (I barely have time to read and need to read [...]

Little Piñatas Favorite Books: His Second Year

This is my first “favorite book” post so far. A lot of that is because Little Piñata has quite a large book collection and for the most part it took him a while to communicate to us what his favorites were. Even though we read to him just about every night his first year, he [...]

Hard topics are always harder to address with young children.

Picture books are always a wonderful [...]
