What inspires you to be a better parent? When Greta Eskridge wants inspiration in her mothering, she doesn’t usually turn to parenting manuals. She turns to her favorite children’s book classics, instead.
In this episode of the Read-Aloud Revival, Greta describes how reading books like The Yearling, Little Women, Caddie Woodlawn, and even Danny, Champion of the World have shaped and formed her into the mother she is today, and how they inspire her to be a better mother tomorrow.
- about Greta’s first job (in a library – in 4th grade!)
