I’ve gotten a lot of feedback on the sherights’ shereads post, including many great suggestions. Thanks to everyone who has contributed their thoughts! Below you’ll find additions to the first shereads list, including a children’s book (this is awesome — if anyone has more children’s book suggestions, please comment)!
