Illustrated Books for Families this Fall

We’re well into the heart of the Fall and classrooms everywhere have been filled for over a month. Our children are busy learning and opening their minds to new concepts and ideas – making this a great time to introduce them to new books to read. Children’s books can convey profound concepts in an approachable manner – and if you’re looking for three books that effectively do that, here are my recommendations.

Featured Author November – Beth Miller

Beth Miller is the founder of Wagtown, a charitable organization that helps communities become more dog-friendly. Her new book, Tucker Finds His Forever Home, was written to speak to children about dogs and their effect on our lives. The story is told through the eyes of a young pit bull named Tucker. It brings readers along on a journey filled with many life lessons about self-worth, breed discrimination, safety, emotions, and bullying. 100% of the book’s proceeds benefit animal welfare projects and programs that make the world a better place for dogs.
