With an overwhelming number of books available on the topics of pregnancy and parenting, it can be difficult to figure out which ones are best to recommend to the families in your classes. That’s where our Mommy Book Club comes in.
In our first Mommy Book Club, we highlighted three classic books that are helpful resources to recommend to new or expectant families. Below are three more informative books that would be welcome additions to any family’s library.
