Well, for many of you, this is Spring Break Week. We are in Michigan, and the peacefulness, as well as watching the migrating swans and ducks swimming on the lake is making it really enjoyable, However, I must admit, I miss the warmth of Florida that we were experiencing a month ago! I hope you are in a warm and sunny location surrounded by lots of books, but if you are still looking for some book titles to add to your library list, here are some Kids’ Books to Remember.

Our kids are sure to encounter refuges and immigrants in their lives. These books can help develop empathy and understanding for what their new friends have experienced.

More about Susan

Hi! I'm Susan, a wife, a mom and a recently retired elementary school librarian with 22 years of experience. One of my greatest joys is to connect kids with a perfect book, which then leads them to a lifelong love of learning. Through my blog, I'm hoping to reach parents, their children and teachers to help them find those special books. I’m also hoping to offer some tips and techniques to use with your children as you read aloud.
