“Reading makes immigrants of us all. It takes us away from home, but more important, it finds homes for us everywhere.” —Jean Rhys
Looking for book ideas for the new month? I’ve got you covered heading into spring! As promised, there’s adult recommendations as well as children’s picture books. Head over to your local library and put these on hold now!
What I’m reading this month…
