Teacher Knows Best: Holiday Books

I am blessed to live next to a elementary school teacher who loves my kids and we love her!! She has multiple education degrees and is the first person I run to when I am worried about speech, development or anything learning related!! She has agreed to write a weekly post for me on some common concerns involving little ones and just great tips! If you have a topic that you would like to see addressed, please e-mail me at

Holiday Books

The kiddos have a couple of weeks off from school so it’s time to snuggle up with some good books! Merry Christmas and Happy Reading!
