If you have a kiddo who’s curious about life under the sea, I encourage you to check out “Ronnie and the Fishes” by Barbara J. Regan. It features main characters of color, childhood drawings, pretty illustrations and a good balance of science nestled within the storytelling. My only complaints are the book is a little long for the age group, and I’d prefer to see more digital illustrations than scanned-in drawings. Overall, though, I applaud Regan’s effort to tell a fun story in this self-published piece. Plus, I believe she’s in her early 80s, so huge props to her for being such an awesome example of someone who follows their dreams regardless of age. This book is available to purchase in my #diversebooksforkids Influencer Shop on Amazon!
In February 2017, we ventured to the Pacific Northwest. And since my husband was on this trip, it was glorious just for the simple fact that I was no longer out numbered.
We survived the plane ride and car trips getting to where we needed to go. And by survive, I mean we didn’t go completely bonkers keeping the little children constantly occupied. But as soon as we settled in at the vacation house, it was clear that the baby had a stomach bug It’s always something right?
