The Book Nook

The Joyful Mother’s Book Nook is a series of book reviews interviewing authors of inspirational children’s stories and CDs. I am profoundly inspired by children’s books and believe that often when I can’t find the words to inspire my children, these authors can.

Join The Joyful Mother community on Facebook to find out about the next live interview and save your seat! There is no obligation to purchase the books to participate in the live calls!
