Love Makes a Family

April's 10 Books to Read list is all about families — Now more than ever, we need family. During this time, while we must stay home, we should cherish all the family time we will have as a result. Or maybe you can't be with your family right now, but you can still have that connection virtually or spiritually. No matter where you are, you are not alone. Even when we are apart, we are still together in our hearts.

#10BooksToRead is a great way to keep your child interested in reading. A partnership between #ABC10, Fortune School of Education, and Sacramento Public Library, we curate a new list each month focused on a central theme.
