Here lies a compilation of childrens’ books meant to challenge the boundary of your parenting bubble. Beautiful books that are sometimes hard to read and hard to explain, but completely fulfilling. Books that show hard, bad sides of the world, but then show the beauty that always outweighs. Books that will bring you to tears while you read them out loud. Books that need to be read and remembered, books to help instill empathy in us and our children. Books that will be banned due to their challenging nature.
Books, books, books are beautiful.
