Last week, we launched the #PBSummerReads campaign. #PBSummerReads means one book for every day of the summery May. Read aloud to your child and dive back into your childhood. The theme for the first week was Grandparents! An ode to the folks who make summer so much fun - with goodies, stories, adventures and love!
