Yesterday I described how Jakie and I are reading through our bookcases. One of the types of books I have enjoyed with my children through the years are those that are collections. That is, they are larger books with many or several stories in them. We use collection type books for character stories, devotions, story time, and more.
I will list the current “collections” we are reading for “story time,” along with their authors and links. Check them out. I think your kids will love them!
