In honor of 9/11 I will start with one of my favorite books to share on this date. There's A Big Beautiful World Out There is a picture book by Nancy Carlson. In very child friendly terms it acknowledges many of the anxieties that children may have while also emphasizing overcoming those fears so as not to miss out on the many wonderful things the world offers. This book was written on September 12, 2001 in response to the attacks on our nation and each year I read it to my third graders before anything else on 9/11.
What are you reading this week?
