Ep. 39- Kid Lit challenges the Soul, Drives Away the Blues and Influences our Faith

Lyndsey’s loot of children’s books.

how story looks- all the stuffed animals are invited and somebody is buckled in a car seat…. do what you have to do!

Books are treasures that never cease to amaze, never go out of style, and reminds us to be carefree, imaginative, and lovely.


One of my favorite’s for bedtime.

Building a tower out of books… who said board books are just for reading??

Some of the books I read this winter- to beat down the blues.. or as Holly GoLightly would say.. “the mean reds.”

Seasonal books are always a good investment

these jokers go for a high price on Ebay- and are beloved by any who pick them up to read.
