We've had a rainy week here, which means we've done a lot of snuggling in the big armchair while reading books. We max out the number of books we're allowed to check out every single time we go to the library, and this time we got through them fast. While we liked all the books, two of them really stood out to me.
As a mother, I really appreciate children's books that can explain to them (and sometimes to me as well) some of the really 'tough' things in life. I'm never really sure how to talk about some of these issues with my kids, so it's extremely helpful when I find a book that does the talking for me. They are usually much more tender and delicate than I would be with the subject. We read two such books this week.
Those are our picks for this week - enjoy!
