I always find it interesting seeing what kind of books my children pick out from the library. But sometimes, I like to encourage them to find something connected to what we’re learning about as a family. For example, our goal of exploring all the national parks (we’ve visited 7 so far!) and as part of this journey, talking about the environment and animal conservation.
My kids like to mix it up. A little non-fiction and fiction. Believe it or not, even with fiction stories there are lots of ways to apply them to real-life conversations.

This is mostly about adding art to a community, but we tied in the importance of community gardens and their impact.

Are there any books that your family has discovered that you’d like to share? I’d love to hear about them!
