The Hike

May's 10 Books to Read list is all about outdoors — While we're all spending some more time at home and using social media for virtual connection, we need to also remember to spend some time outside. Let Mother Nature sweep you up in her arms and feel the sunshine, the breeze, and the green grass on your feet.

#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.
