Happy Tuesday everyone! I’m sorry to have missed a few Top Ten Tuesdays due to being far too busy. But I’m back now! And this week’s topic happens to be about something that I’ve actually been actively thinking about for some time now. I don’t have children yet, but I’ve sort of been compiling a rough list in my head, listing all of the books that I want to make sure that they have available. As a child, I sadly was unable to access diverse children’s books, and therefore was unable to list any here, but please share your suggestions with me, as I would love to add those to my kids’ library!
For those of you who don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is all about, here is a quote from The Broke and the Bookish, the genuises behind this weekly meme!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post and, if you want to, add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s posts (typically put up midnight EST on Tuesday) so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It’s a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
…and now that all of the necessary stuff is out of the way….
