Favorite Parenting Books – as recommended by Ms. Blum

Last Child in the Woods, by Richard Louv

A great book written all about how today’s kids are suffering from nature-deficit disorder. In today’s tech-savvy world, kids are missing something, and it’s important for the world that we renew their interest in nature.

How to Talk so Kids Will Listen and Listen so Kids Will Talk, by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish

A book I read over and over again. We can learn a lot about talking so our kids will listen and really listening, even when they appear to be saying things that upset us.

It’s So Amazing, Robie H. Harris

A book about puberty. Made for ages 7-up, this book has great illustrations and explanations that explain puberty and all that goes with it with sensible, open-minded explanations. Highly recommend!

It’s Perfectly Normal, by Robit H. Harris

A follow-up book to It’s So Amazing, made for ages 9-12. Great series and really opens up a sometimes sensitive topic with humor and candor.
