    Hi all,

    I wanted to mention that I just started a blog on kids' books in case some of you might want more book suggestions for your younger kids. My three posts so far are on how to grow a reader, pink princess books with a positive message, and fun alphabet books.

    Here's the link: https://raisingreadersweb.wordpress.com/

    Happy reading! smile
