Favorite children’s book: Leave Me Alone by Vera Brosgol.
“It’s a high quality, award-winning picture book that incorporates opportunities to play with STEM concepts, reflects the cultural experience of families in my community, celebrates social and emotional well-being, and is appreciated by a wide range of ages.”
