11 Powerful Books For Kids

Where did the summer break go?! Wasn’t it just yesterday that I was blogging about a list of things you could do this summer?! 🙄

But back to school it is and that has me thinking about books!

From picture books to books that focus on sharing, kindness, courage, relationships and more. Here are my favorite children’s books.  These must reads belong in every kid’s library.  Enjoy.
