Whenever I can find a book that has practical lessons within in it, I usually really love it. Teaching your kids through books about kindness, sharing, love, etc is a great visual. My kids always seem to listen a little more and pick up on things when we share in story form.

Recently, I was given the book Same Kind of Different as Me and read it with my boys. Right away, I loved the message of this book as it encourages children to embrace everyone. We have had some conversations about loving others no matter the differences and how to look out for others so this book connected perfectly with our oldest son. I could tell throughout the story that he felt empathy towards the characters of the book and enjoyed the overall story.
It is definitely a book that will serve our family well as our kids all enter into the elementary age years. As a mama, I want to encourage my kids to celebrate the differences in others and be confident in how God created them and those around them, and this book beautifully supports that.
Personally, this past month I finished two books.
A Portrait of Emily Price by Katherine Reay– It has been a while since I have read fiction and I really enjoyed this book. Now, I want to pick up another fiction book to read!
Grace Not Perfection by Emily Ley– I absolutely loved this book! It was so practical and encouraged me greatly as a mama.
