Affirming Children's Books
Books help reinforce the positive messages we want children to embrace. That’s why it’s so important that children have access to books that affirm who they are and encourage them to believe in themselves. While self love and self acceptance develops as children grow, books like these can help us nurture those skills along the way. Follow on INSTAGRAM for more book recommendations.
