In a time when we are all encouraged to practice self-care, whether as mothers, fathers, single, married, older, or younger, we are simultaneously pressured to find that nebulous ‘thing’ that helps each of us capture what will restore our weary souls.

This task becomes all the more difficult when what feeds us is an allusive concept as easy to grasp as the fog on a rainy day.
It may not be popular, but I love it when the weather turns cold. I love wearing fuzzy sweaters, bundling in cozy blankets, and drinking hot chocolate. So when I had a chance to review a book all about winter chilliness, I had to investigate. Cozy, Snowy Cuddles wonderfully captures that cozy winter feeling in a touch-and-feel board book for little readers.
I’m a big fan of Autumn. So when I spotted a children’s book that talked about all the good things about Fall, I couldn’t wait to read it. Candy Apple Blessings, illustrated by Maddie Frost, is a fantastic introduction the wonderfulness found between the months of September to November.

We feel sluggish from the holiday sweets, but not ready to start new year resolutions. It’s an in between time that doesn’t feel like it’s going anywhere.
