Yesterday, while sitting in traffic, I attempted to listen to the radio for about 10 minutes, before angrily shutting off the stereo and opening the windows instead. In that ten minutes, I shook my head angrily, clenched my fists a lot and drew more than one curious stare from the people in cars nearby. Thus is the state of the world, my friends. The news is so terrible and so infuriating lately, I just can’t. even.
Thus, I was inspired to write my latest post for Book Riot — a list of books to read with your kids when the world is a garbage fire. Because they may be small, but they are listening.
Remember to breathe and take time for yourself during the crazy holiday season upon which we are now embarking. Books are a great cheap method of self care.
