December 17, 2016

kids' books to remember

As I was working out on this snowy, cold morning, I realized that Christmas Eve is just a week away! I love all of the lights, the music and the special times with friends and family. I plan to savor every moment! I hope that you find some quiet time to cuddle with your kids under a warm blanket with a cup of hot chocolate and your favorite Christmas story. Maybe you’ll even find a new favorite story in these Kids’ Books to Remember. Those are the holiday moments you’ll always cherish!

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.

I appreciate your comments!
