This past winter was hard for so many, my family included. When Omicron hit in December we were already in the midst of a never-ending onslaught of daycare plagues and family injuries. Then we had two unexpected deaths in the family in short order. And then we all got Covid, like most of the people on the planet. Luckily we are all okay. I hope you are too!
As always, books helped me through these challenging times. Funny stories. Sweet stories. Tender stories. Both real and made-up. For kids and for grown-ups.
I share them here with you in case they can help lift you up, lighten your emotional load, or inspire you in your dark moments. Or really any moments. Because that’s the beauty of books!
