Children’s Books to Open Hearts & Minds

Posted by on November 23, 2016.

I am writing this from my lovely little bubble of Bear Pond Books. I think we can all agree it’s been a busy, distracting fall. I know that my book reading time has taken a precipitous fall because of it.

Patricia Polacco for the Holidays

Are you familiar with Patricia Polacco?

I hope you are.  I have been in love with her beautiful, funny, moving, and meaningful books for years.  My all time favorite is The Bee Tree in which a little girl, with the help of her grandfather and some bees, learns that the “adventure, knowledge, and wisdom of books”….” is as sweet as the honey from a bee tree.”

But that is a blog for another day!
