Today’s book share is #MostPeople. Oh how I love this book. Instead of a focus on those few who make poor decisions, do bad things, or are mean, this book reminds us all that most people aren’t like that and to find the good everywhere. #sparksinthedark #readingsummit #kidlit – source

Some mamas didn't hold you in their belly, but they will forever hold you in their hearts. Mamas come in all different shapes, colors, and ages, but they all have one thing in common. They love you...
Oh my. I love this book sooooo much. A gorgeous story where every page is an illustration of different “mother” and child combination with the underlying message that whoever I call “mom” doesn’t have to look like me at all to love me. #SparksInTheDark #kidsdeserveit – source
