Pulling from our huge library of books, our authors, and our knowledgeable staff, we believe these e-specials will help people find good answers to good questions.”

  1. Thank you for sharing these awesome books! I’m a new mother and while we’re still years away from having a conversation like this with our little one, it’s nice to know that there are some great options out there about how to start a conversation like this.
    I wish there was an option like this for me when I was younger. I’ve always been a reader and think these are perfect to teach and help start a conversation between children and their parents. I’m also happy I found this article the day after Earth Day! I think I’ll read that one myself!
    What other books do you suggest for young children that introduce them to sophisticated topics like these?
