I took a mini-break from blogging. I don't have the right words but one of the only ways I know I can make the change is to continue educating myself and my children. I will educate myself by listening to others and by reading. So with the current events of the country, our book list for this week will reflect that. One of the small, very small, changes will be that our books will have more diversity to them. I realized that my children's books are mainly white authors. I believe in the Black Lives Matter movement and that I have white privilege. Our book list this week will be just one of the small steps I take.
With that brief introduction here are the books we are reading this week. This post does NOT contain any affiliate links.
I am currently reading for myself: The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness by Michelle Alexander
I am just going to share the two books we are reading aloud this week. I will start to include individual children's books in July when we officially start back with homeschooling.
What are you reading this week for yourself and as a family? What is your favorite read aloud?
Also, I do plan on reviewing these books after we finish them and sharing any activities/discussions that we did while reading the books.
