Connecting deeply with our kids can be difficult in our busy, technology-driven lives. Reading aloud offers us a chance to be fully present with our children. It also increases our kids’ academic success, inspires compassion, and fortifies them with the inner strength they need to face life’s challenges. As Sarah Mackenzie has found with her own six children, reading aloud long after kids are able to read to themselves can deepen relationships in a powerful way. Founder of the immensely popular Read-Aloud Revival podcast, Sarah knows first-hand how reading can change a child’s life. In The Read-Aloud Family, she offers the inspiration and age-appropriate book lists you need to start a read-aloud movement in your own home. From a toddler’s wonder to a teenager’s resistance, Sarah details practical strategies to make reading aloud a meaningful family ritual. Reading aloud not only has the power to change a family—it has the power to change the world.

Reflections on Belonging While Wandering the Globe

As Tsh Oxenreider, author of Notes From a Blue Bike, chronicles her family’s adventure around the world—seeing, smelling, and tasting the widely varying cultures along the way—she discovers what it truly means to be at home. The wide world is calling. Americans Tsh and Kyle met and married in Kosovo. They lived as expats for most of a decade. They’ve been back in the States—now with three kids under ten—for four years, and while home is nice, they are filled with wanderlust and long to answer the call. Why not? The kids are all old enough to carry their own backpacks but still young enough to be uprooted, so a trip—a nine-months-long trip—is planned. At Home in the World follows their journey from China to New Zealand, Ethiopia to England, and more. They traverse bumpy roads, stand in awe before a waterfall that feels like the edge of the earth, and chase each other through three-foot-wide passageways in Venice. And all the while Tsh grapples with the concept of home, as she learns what it means to be lost—yet at home—in the world. “In this candid, funny, thought-provoking account, Tsh shows that it’s possible to combine a love for adventure with a love for home.” —Gretchen Rubin, New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project and Better Than Before

Why the Best Thing for Your Child Is You

A leading child psychiatrist shows why it's best for parents to put down the flashcards and follow their instincts. Parents are constantly exposed to dubious claims and fads that create needless anxiety and stress, from the vaccine-autism scare to worthless products such as ?Baby Einstein” videos. Worse, they're often discouraged from doing things that have been proven to protect children, promote learning, and wire young brains for healthy development. Child development expert Stephen Camarata draws on research, case studies, and his own experiences to argue for a return to instinct-driven parenting. He shows why developmental milestones are misleading and the best things you can do to make sure your kid grows up functional are almost always simple activities such as playing ?peek-a-boo,” reading aloud, and talking to them. This is the true ?magic” that turns babies into intelligent, confident, curious adults. Camarata debunks a range of parenting myths and empowers parents to recognize irrational fears and incredible claims that increase worry, steal their cash, and generally diminish their enjoyment of the parenting process.
