10 Children’s Books Web Sites

Access to Children’s During Pandemic

This Tuesday, January 12 at 8 EST / 7 CST I will discuss the importance of using children’s books for nannies with Rebecca Pearcy for the US Nanny Association at https://m.facebook.com/usnannyassociation/

Below is a resource list of children’s books web sites that will be discussed during our conversation.

During the pandemic most local libraries are closed. But that doesn’t mean children can’t still access children’s books or have books read to them aloud.
