Book List

Books allow us the ability to immerse ourselves into a whole new world of knowledge and emotions. They provide us with experiences different from our own, enhances our growth, and can be a great way for families to connect. I have compiled a list of my favourite infant-to-adolescents books to help families and caregivers enhance development among themselves and their children. I hope you and your family love these books as much as I do!
