Read Together With These Favorite Read Along Books for Kids

Books are one of the best ways to teach kids about the world. They can be used for educational purposes, to help with their reading skills, or just to give them a story to enjoy. Reading will open your child’s mind to all that they can learn about the world around them.

The Benefits Of Read Along Books for Kids

Books are an important part of a child’s development. Through reading books, children are able to understand new words and phrases, increase their vocabulary, and develop imagination through reading. Reading also has many other benefits like improving attention span, comprehension skills, and confidence.

Read along books provide a good opportunity for parents to model reading. Kids might feel frustrated when they need help sounding out words on paper, or they may be fearful of making mistakes. Books with read along stories solve these problems by giving you the opportunity to read aloud while also providing audio narration. Kids are more likely to read themselves if they see you enjoying it too. After all, kids learn by example! Here are some of our favorite read along books for kids.

by Grace Byers & Keturah A. Bobo

The perfect gift to all, this gorgeous, lyrical book celebrates loving who you are, respecting others around you, and being kind to one another. “The title and picture alone will do wonders for little girls that resemble this picture.

Grace Bryers, a well-known actress and activist, drew inspiration from her childhood for I Am Enough. The bullying she experienced while growing up led to the creation of this beautifully poetic ode to the empowerment of young girls.

Fall in Love With a Cowboy in These Western Romance Books

Western romance novels are perfect for readers who like a little grit with their love stories. Set in the Wild West and filled with rugged cowboys, these books feature tough men and women coming together to build new lives—and new love—in a dangerous world. Whether you’re looking for historical western romance books or stories set in modern times, this list has something for everyone.

What Are Western Romance Books?

Usually set in the 19th century, western romance books take place in a time when horses were the primary mode of transportation, and life was simple and centered on family and community. Although there is no set definition for western romance books, some common characteristics of the genre include cowboys, ranches, western settlers, and revenge. If books set in modern times are more up your alley, there are plenty of contemporary western romances as well. While they don’t have the historical aspect, the same charming cowboys, ranches, and scenery will capture your attention.

Western romance books can share similar character types and tropes as many other romance subgenres (think friends to lovers, second chances, love triangles, and more!), but it’s the cowboys themselves that make this romance subgenre stand out from the rest. These romance novels feature rugged and mysterious love interests and often involve elements of danger, suspense, and brooding heroes. The combination of adventure with a hint of danger, as well as the raw masculinity combined with chivalrous manners, make Western romance books impossible to resist!

The Psychology of Money: Timeless lessons on wealth, greed, and happiness by Morgan Housel

2. The Psychology of Money: Timeless Lessons on Wealth, Greed, and Happiness

by Morgan Housel

Things like investing, personal finance, and business decisions are generally taught in a math-based field, where data and formulas tell us exactly what needs to be done. However, most people generally don’t make their financial decisions based on a spreadsheet – one has to consider their personal history, incentives, pride, and so much more in these decisions. Thus, it doesn’t matter how much you know about being financially smart with money. It’s about changing habits and how you behave with your money in your everyday life.

In this book, award-winning author Morgan Housel shares short stories exploring the ways people think differently about money and instead teaches ways for people to have a better sense of money and how to use it properly.

The Hottest Erotica Books We Can’t Put Down

Interested in some new steamy book finds penned by Black authors? We got all your wildest fantasies with these recommendations. Erotica, unfortunately, gets a bad rep, but there are so many benefits of reading erotica that this genre deserves a second look.

Why You Should Read Erotica Books

According to mental health and sexuality educator Sarah Jane, reading arousing material can help you shift your stress or anxiety into positive emotions with a rush of dopamine. As life’s daily woes can take a hit on a person’s mind, they can even trickle down into an individual’s sex life. A good erotica book find can take a turn for the better in the bedroom. Additionally, reading erotica books can provide a safe space for sexual exploration. Sex and masturbation have had a long-term connection to shame and taboo.

However, reading erotica is always a reader’s sexual imagination and reinforces readers are worthy of sexual exploration. According to Dr. Risa Kagan, a gynecologist at Sutter East Bay Medical Foundation, about 1 in 10 women have a low sex drive and are distressed by it. A study conducted in the National Library of Medicine found that 90 percent of women used ‘mental framing’ (also known as scenario conjuring) to get aroused. Since erotica provides literary contextualization to characters versus a visual foundation, women erotica readers can connect differently to erotica titles compared to male readers.

Here are 5 of the best erotica books that will leave you wanting more!

Bloodlaced (Youkai Bloodlines Book 1) by Courtney Maguire

2. Bloodlaced (Youkai Bloodlines Book 1)

by Courtney Maguire

When Asagi is sold into the house of a young nobleman, Mahiro, after failing to protect a boy from their abuser, life is forever changed. Asagi is different. Both man and woman. Asagi has always been a servant, never knowing kindness or generosity. Mahiro is also different. He is a youkai, a demon feeding on the blood of innocents. When Mahiro and Asagi’s friendship blooms into something more and their new relationship is threatened, Mahiro turns Asagi into a youkai to save his life. But when the boy, now a man, Asagi failed to protect, reappears, Asagi must determine what it means to be human and protect what he loves most.

The Youkai Bloodlines series is a three-part series featuring demons, love, blood, and hard-hitting decisions. “This is one of those stories that doesn’t fit neatly into a category. It has a love story but isn’t a romance. It has scary scenes but isn’t a horror tale. It has vampires, but isn’t a typical paranormal story. What it is, is a fantastic and tragic story that is all-encompassing and heart-wrenching and definitely a book that will stay with you after you finish it. It will be so interesting to see where Maguire takes this series if this is our introduction!” – Paranormal Romance Guild
