Celebrate Family

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

photoNovember brings to mind games of soccer and football in the park; walks among fallen leaves, and, of course, family time around the dining table. How do you “celebrate family” in November?

Curtis has an entire section of parenting books located in the children’s area devoted, in one way or another, to the topic of families. Check one out and enrich your family life!
