At the Shower
Bring your books to the shower. Please write something in the book so it can be treasured for years to come.
Books that have endured the test of time.
Heart warming books provide opportunities for parents' genuine emotions to surface, increasing parent-child bonding.
Strong Female Leads
Seeing female characters that are capable, dream big, succeed and fail helps both boys and girls build resistance to gender-based biases.
Books featuring lead characters from a variety of backgrounds plants an amazing seed for appreciating diversity. Here, we've added additional books on Asian, Japanese and Filipino cultures.
