Random Reads: Hard, but Good

I spend a lot of time roaming the children’s section at the library. I come home with piles of picture books to try out. I did this even before I had kids to read to. Random Reads is a weekly feature of something I found at the library and loved.

I won’t give you too much of a description of synopsis, and no spoilers! Age recommendations are only approximate. Every book I put in Random Reads is one that I have read and highly recommend. Enjoy!

A Shelter in Our Car by Monica Gunning and illustrated by Elaine Pedlar is amazing. It is hard to read. Neither parent in our home could get through this book with dry eyes. The painful and difficult issues of a homeless child are presented compassionately and honestly. This is a great book to start that conversation with your kids. I would read this book to anyone four or older.

Brother-Bug gave it 3 stars.

Sister-Bug gave it 5 stars and has desired repeated readings.

Toddler-Bug was napping, probably dreaming of Zebras.

If you get a chance to read this one let me know: What did you think?
