Day 4: How to pick the best books
The reason many of you are doing this challenge is because you want the BEST possible success for your child.
We’re already more than halfway through our challenge and I hope you’ve gained some amazing insights on how to do that, but the best is yet to come so I hope you will continue and finish the whole challenge out!
If you’ve missed anything or have questions, please reach out to us and let us know so we can help you!

-My kid thinks reading is like school work.
-My child is an advanced reader, but I’m worried about the content being age appropriate.
-Or I have a book monster! They devour books like candy!
