Summer Books We All Need To Read

When I think about my ideal reading scenario the vision that comes to me is a warm summer day, being poolside with a beverage, and great book. Well this summer will be different. With travel very limited due to Covid-19 my ideal scenario will have to shift, but now more than ever we need to be reading and educating ourselves! The world is shifting and its long overdue. It was incredibly important to me that this edition of mom books include women of color, authors of color, and some important history lessons. I will do better about including more diversity in all my book roundups. Happy reading!
