Summer is all about vacations, spending time outdoors, and curling up with a good book. Here at Happy Science Mom, we have been reviewing children’s books that relate to our toolkit for raising happy, balanced children.
I thought this would be a great time to highlight some of these treasures so you can share them with your children over the summer. I have broken them down by topic and linked to my review.
