#10 The Underground Toy Society by Jessica D Adams

No Title

No Description

The Underground Toy Society children's book would make the perfect stocking filler for children because the book aims to teach kids to love and appreciate what they have. Kids will want to clean their rooms and take better care of their toys after reading this book, which will come at a perfect time after receiving all those new toys for the Holidays! 

The Underground Toy Society and the Annual Toy Drive children's book would make a great stocking filler because it teaches kids to think about other children in the world who may be less fortunate to receive gifts. 

The Underground Toy Society Helps Beary Bear children's book would make a great stocking filler because many children have experienced losing their favorite stuffie at one point or another. This book shows Beary's adventure to get back to his child, and shows how that same child could have found Beary sooner by simply cleaning up her toys!

You are strong. You are brave. You are so incredibly good. On an ordinary night in an ordinary house, a father's ordinary words do something extraordinary.

As she ventures forth into the world on her own, her father's affectionate affirmations—now carried in memory—bolster her through life's challenges and, like whispers on the night wind, come full circle to strengthen her aging father and young son of her own. With breathtaking illustrations from Spanish artist Dani Torrent, Goodnight Whispers is a heartwarming story about a father's love and the power of affirmation.
