recommended reading list


Over the years I've collected a reading list that I often will recommend to others (when asked). And I find myself adding to this list as I get my hands on new resources and books. 


I know sometimes as parents, reading is a luxury. Well, reading books outside of your children's books that is! But, when you're seeking a good book for raising children, natural living, birthing and other topics that come up in our parenting path, here's a good list to get you started with choices to choose from.
