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.

Here’s a post from a special teacher that is so true.
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.
Although my kids are grown, this is what I hope for my boys.
