Picture Book Month

In libraries, classrooms, family rooms, and at bedtime around the world, every day print picture books take children on incredible journeys of discovery and bring people together. Whether it’s a new or beloved story, children begin to associate words with meaning and are introduced to beautiful artwork that they can hold in their lap.

Books With Homeschool Characters

Youth Fiction with Home School characters
2020 has been a year unlike any other and going back to school will be no different. If you are contemplating homeschooling and are wondering how to introduce this lifestyle to your children, we've got some fun reads that will help your children learn about characters who are navigating being at home for school too. Sometimes, it's nice for kids to see themselves in the books that they read; to know they are not alone and that there are others out there who have walked in their shoes.
